Trinket #365 - Celebration Necklace

It's THE END! (Or is it only the beginning?)

I still can't believe that a whole year has passed since I started this strange journey. The things I've learned and the things I've improved upon are so plentiful that I think they're deserving of their own post. I can't really think of a better way to start off the new year.

Thanks to all of my friends and followers who have been so supportive throughout this project! A special thanks goes out to my family for putting up with my whining, complaining, staying up late, getting up early, and ever-growing stash of supplies that I've squirreled away in every nook and cranny of the house.

Yes, there will be another 365 Project for me next year. I've decided to nurture a different facet of my creativity, however, and will not be making daily crafts. Check out the unveiling tomorrow :D

Trinket #364 - Energy Pendant

I need all the energy I can muster for some upcoming projects in early 2012, so I'm hoping that this quartz and copper pendant can help out a bit. I chose a loose, casual wire-wrapping style for the copper, and then I paired it with an even more casual hemp cord.

I'm pretty sure I'll be wearing this quite a bit in the next few months...

Trinket #362 - Lucky Bracelet

I remembered these charms that I picked up on a clearance sale about three months ago and finally put them to use today. This was a quick and easy (but hefty) project that was assembled using a pre-fab bracelet and some oval jump rings. In all, the construction took about five minutes.

Trinket #361 - Easy Beaded Bracelet

I love the meditative qualities of stringing beads. This bracelet was made using an extra-long length of wire strung with glass seed beads. I wrapped the wire to double the coil and then added a simple clasp to finish it. Ahhh...

Trinket #360 - Super-Stylized Leaf Pendant

A quick bent wire pendant. Because I don't have the energy for anything else. Blah.

Trinket #359 - Classy Holiday Earrings

Faceted amber beads on simple head pins. Can't get much easier than these, and considering that the kids got me up before the sun this morning, an easy project is just what I needed.

Best wishes for a happy holiday!
