Eco-friendly Bejeweled Bauble Tutorial

I think this post just need to start with that because I am sooooo happy that this tut is done & ready to be turned into Beautiful Baubles that'll hang proudly on (hopefully) many a Christmas tree =)
If you know me you know I get really excited when I know I've made something that's not only beautiful, but also functional and lastly something that is eco-friendly as well ~  well these Baubles encompass all those things so I couldn't be more delighted with them.
What tops it off even further is I know me creating these and showing how they're made will prompt more good use for things that are bad for our environment ~ so if you like them please consider making these beauties too before you throw out any plastic! Just consider the happy faces that could be seen on Christmas day if you give someone special one of these beautiful baubles as a gift, with all your handmade love visible within it. 

By the way Mama HAPPY CHRISTMAS, seeing these beauties are yours ;)
My mum (otherwise known as Mama or Mumsie), been determined to get her pic
on this blog at some point for whatever reason mwaaah haaa haaa ;)

So without further ado here is the tutorial, 
my Christmas gift to you ~ all the wonderful people 
that have made my 2012 a lovely year to be online =)

Much love, Jennibellie xxx

    I know you're a 'no-reply' commenter...but wanted to let you know that I did reply to your sweetest of all compliment...

    Thank you my Jennibellie!!!It is SO good to hear from you!!! I now own an Apple and Safari doesn't allow me to open about 90% of the videos that I attempt to open. I'm not really too keen on adding Chrome or Firefox and will take it to the Apple Store when we go to the States next month to see if they can fix it. Then, I will spend lots of time catching up on all your videos!!! I do read the blog most times, but I'm terrible about leaving comments. Too many projects to work on. I miss you though and again...just as happy as pie to hear from you.

    love, peace and all things groovy...

  14. These are so beautiful. Thanks so much for showing us how you did it, you never cease to inspire!

  15. In our family we make decorations as part of a tradition, in fact my Mom still has the ones i made from my first year (yeah, they were black hehehe). I like that you use pieces of broken jewellery from your past, each piece that you add, to me, seems to speak to the provenance of the artwork, and the importance of the holiday as one that evokes treasured memories.

  16. A great way to cheer somebody up with such a present! Here are some other ideas:
    By the way, I followed you up with GFC, it'd be great if you follow me back.
