Awhile back I decided to get into making jewelry. I made a beaded ring- tried for a bracelet and then gave up.
So, in desperate need of new earrings I decided to take a fresh crack at the whole thing. With the assistance of my lovely crafty sister (who was on a visit), we did some fun beading.
Okay, so I just used the pattern from the booklet that came with the "how to make jewelry" kit my Aunt gave me- but they look pretty good!
Then I got a little ambitious and decided to make a pair for a friend with an upcoming birthday.
And on a whim even went for a necklace! I caught inspiration from Anthropologie (oh, I die for Anthropologie, but who can afford to die?) and whipped up a little triple-strand thing in yummy chocolate and caramel colors. Then the whole set sat in my apt for a week while I didn't deliver it! Shame on me.
