recyled wine cork jewellery

I made jewellery from wine corks, garden twine, thin copper wire and recyled findings and beads from my box of crafty bits and pieces. I did buy the earring wires cos of hygene but I think they cost about 25p a pair. I was pretty pleased with them and think three bracelets and a pair of earrings cost less than a pound to make.
Contact me if you would like instructions or pics as the file were too big to upload! God I am rubbish at this, good job I can make earrings!

I'd love to see pics! (I'm rubbish at uploading pics here, too - can you upload to flickr and then link? I normally do that). :flower:

Hi Susie, I don't know how to do the flickr thing but will get my IT chap to sort it for me (when he gets up, it's Saturday!)

Very cute. Shame you have to drink all that wine to be able to get your raw materials eh? :wink: :lol:

If you are ever in the area you are all welcome to suffer for my art!! Wine starts at about 1.20 a litre over here so we could SAVE a fortune. My grumpy old man calls that 'womens logic'

I love your jewellery, what an unusual idea, and it's really effective. £1.20 a litre, gosh, that would be my partner's idea of heaven :drunken:
