Glass flowers

So, my cousin gave me these cool glass flowers.  But I’ve never known what to do with them.  I embellished some jars (earlier post) and with the ‘left overs’ I decided to try to make a set of jewelry.  This is what I’ve got so far.

The long series of chain and single flowers will be a necklace, the short series with flowers wrapped close to the chain will be a bracelet and the two single flowers will be earrings.

You can see some extra leaves and clumps of ‘berries’ I may incorporate.

I was going to attach these large hooped chains to smaller chains at the end, but they flopped around badly, so I went back and got more of this flat chain.

I’ve added some leaves to the necklace chain.

I like the earrings – which are kind of hard to see here.  But I don’t like the necklace very much.  Is that just because I don’t personally like lots of dangling things? Or is it too much? What might make it better?

This is what I have left over. I don’t generally like the berry things, but I do like how the light makes them glow.  How to encorporate them?

I also thought I could use some extras to make barrettes.

  1. Pretty! The earrings are great. Could you somehow put them on bobby pins?

    Those glass flowers ARE really cool. What if you took one of the necklace flowers and put it on a leather cord to wear as a choker? You might like that effect better than incorporating all of them in one single necklace. You could keep one of each kind/color, and give the rest as gifts. 🙂

    Another excellent idea!
