Mum's latest hobby

My mum's taken up a new hobby and been busy with it in the last 2 weeks. I only found out lately that Fu Fu and Baby's mum are also into the same hobby.. ie. making jewellery !! Anyway I have promised Baby that I'd share with her some of the pieces that mum made (please, please don't laugh.. she is only at the 'beginner's stage' and can only do the real easy stuff.)
Mum got drawn into this because Dad's sister, Auntie Jean, is a real pro at it.. She actually conducts classes to teach people how to make these jewellery, so mum's picked up a thing or two from her. Mum also found out that this is becoming a very expensive hobby as the stones, crystals and beads can cost a lot! (Uh oh... I hope this does not mean that she has to cut down on my treats and toys budget!)

This is made by Auntie Jean for mum and dad's wedding in Sep last year.

I hope this hobby will be here to stay for at least a while because mum can be like a whirlwind sometimes and goes through 'phases' as she has little patience. I do remember a time when she was into cross stitch (but if my memory didn't fail me, she did not even complete ONE piece.. grandmama had to complete it for her..).. *snigger*..

** Baby, I will try to take some pics. of the earrings she made and show them to you. Let me know if you like any of them and I will sneak it out for you (but then again, I think the ones made by your mum is waaaay nicer.. ooopps, don't tell mum I said that! **

Yup, the earrings are for sale. Our Mama sells her work but only thru words of mouth. She dont really do any advertising.

Hi Huskee!
My mom went through that phase too, but your mom makes much prettier stuff than mine. I hope she sticks with it. Thanks for coming to my blog - I will link you!

Those necklaces are so pretty!! Don't worry, I doubt that it will cut into your treats/toy budget.

(Just make sure your Mommy doens't make you wear any of them!!). LOL.

Hi Huskee, Your mom makes nice jewelry. I just saw your puppy pictures. You were so adorable! I so want a little doggie too!

Hey Huskee Boy,
Wow, the wedding necklace made by Auntie Jean is fantastic! We're sure your Mama will be a pro like her in no time at all. Mama has done cross stitch in the past & it is very time consuming. So she understands why your Mama didn't stay with it. Mama likes quilting much better, it takes time, depending on how big of project you are doing. But now Mama mainly sews the doggie clothes that she sells. Hey, maybe your Mama can sell her jewelry too??? Maybe she can make the doggie blings for collars too. Those are really hot right now.
Luv & Wirey Hugs!
