One of the classes offered at the craft weekend was making a beaded necklace! I was a little intimidated, definitely not something I would do on my own. The thought of threaded little beads onto a string had me a little stressed. But honestly this was so much fun and relaxed. We were able to pick out the colors we wanted and layout the beads to see how it would look! I can't tell you exactly what we used, because I haven't a clue about jewlery, but Michele from The Crafting Room was an awesome teacher. She kepts us relaxed as we learned each step!
I made the necklace for my mom as a thank you for her staying the weekend at my house with the kids. I chose blue beads (blue is her favorite color) M for her first name and a little coffee cup, because like me she loves coffee!!
I also decorated a little craft bag using the Stampin Up Winter Woods stamp set and Into the Woods Coordinating dies. I think it came out nice considering my resources were limited and this was not planned :-)
I really like making the necklace, and Michele, was gracious enough to let me make a bracelet for myself! The beads are so pretty!!!!! Love it!
So what do you think? Are you a jewelry maker too?? Do you think I should add this to my hobbies or stick with paper-crafting???
Happy Stampin or jewelry making :-)
