Handmade Jewellery

'C' had a jewellery making competition at school. It had to be child friendly and something recycled. He was not comfortable putting small beads in a string so we decided to use nylon shimmer mesh as string with plastic rings over it. These rings are used with mirrors in tribal embroidery. Rings had yellow thread wrapped around them. Used an old  Lumba's (Ladies Rakhi) left over stone and crochet flower as pendant. Since it was all green and red, I added one satin yellow flower to add yellow color in pendant.
Told him how to put satin green ribbon in the hole of stone and then tie it with red shimmer mesh. After this, he had to put rings on the mesh and then adjust their spacing. He did it perfectly in school and stood first in his class.
It can be used as Christmas tree decoration also. So I'm submitting it as my second entry in artsy-crafty @mindfull-meanderings.
