Gift bag and some more jewellery

These last 3 months of the year are always very busy for me, with lots of birthdays in both my husband's family and mine, so this means making lots of presents!LOL
Next week will be one of my sister in law's birthday, so I made for her a bracelet and earings to match, I hope she will like them. I used silver wire 18, 20 and 22 gauge and african turquoise, fancy jasper beads and Swarovski crystals. I closed the bracelet with an egyptian clasp, you can find a very good tutorial here http://www.youtube.com/profile?user=KateDrewWilkinson&view=videos.
For the gift bag I used gesso, modeling paste, tissue paper, Stewart Gill acrylics, cotton bandage, collage, stamps, inks, scrapbook papers, fibers and UTEE.
So here is Mairead's present!

And some details:



Thanks for your visit and for all your beautiful, supportive comments.

Have a wonderful week,
Lots of love,
Sanda xx

Hi Sanda
Look at the beautiful wire jewelry you are now creating!! Your talent never ceases...That gift bag is over the top incredible!!! WOW! I am so amazed. And look at all of the products you used to make it...I wouldn't know where to begin. But I would love to learn!!! Wish you were local and taught classes. :-) What a lucky sister in law!
