Gift for my mother in law

About this design:

I made these for my mother in law, even though she makes jewelry as well. I haven't told her that I can punch metal yet, and this is my first project so far. The 29 11 stands for a scripture that was her mothers favorite, who passed away last year. I asked her for some numbers or words that reminded her of her mother, she said Jeremiah 29 11. I loved the look of the faceted antique soocho jade with the brass.


Brass earwires, brass headpins, Vintaj brass squares from Lima!, brass split rings, faceted antique soocho jade from Lima! and swarovski crystals....and metal punches of course.

    These are both intruiging and lovely. Your mother-in-law will be sure to love them, especially with that scriptural reference. I am impressed by what you got from LB and how you combined it with other elements. I haven’t made a purchase from LB yet; they’ll have to go on my list for next time.
