Monday's Muse - Something new?

In last week's Monday's Muse, I mentioned that I would share with you some ideas I have. I mean, what is a muse but a fuel to ideas, right?

One of the ideas is to make jewelry and sell it in an Etsy shop. Now, I don't profess to be all that creative and knowledgeable about jewelry making, but I've made a few pieces for myself and thought that others might like some of the same.

Instead of jumping right into it, I am bringing my idea to you. Take a look at the few pieces I've made and tell me what you think. As usual, your input is greatly appreciated. :)

This was the first thing I made... just a basic red and white bracelet. I added a little dangly thingy (yup, that's right, I don't know any of the correct terms) because I like the way it looks.

I really like how this necklace turned out. It's delicate yet sophisticated with clear and marble-like beads along the sides. I don't know what the pendant is, but each one was unique. And I love that type of closure; I think it looks fancy and it's easy to put on.
This is my absolute favorite. It's the third piece I made and I modeled it after one I saw in a shop. The necklace is leather with the chain droppy thingy ending in beads that are a similar shade to the flat disks in the front and the stone (rock?). That stone is fabulous, don't you think? I used some straight pole thingies to separate everything.
What do you think? Give me your honest opinion. Besides my needing to educate myself on what everything is called and the techniques used, do you think I should trying selling jewelry to make extra money?

That's what my muse has been up to - trying to think of new ways to make money and support myself and my children.
