Oh No, Another Hobby! Hooked on Jewelry Making ~

Yesterday, I mentioned that my sweet DIL Jami {Crazy Daisy Creations} taught me how to make beaded bracelets. We had so much fun and I may very well be hooked on this new hobby! I thought you would enjoy seeing the two bracelets that I created. . .

I tried to make earrings to match the second one and I struggled with getting the wire wrapped correctly. Making the bracelet was much easier but I really would like to make earrings too...and necklaces! :)

I'm curious if any of you have tried beading and jewelry making. Let me know if you have any tips for this beginner, ok? Do you know of any good websites to order beads & supplies? What is your favorite beading magazine?

Now I really should fold some laundry and unload the dishwasher. ugh! Isn't it the pits when work gets in the way of your creativity?!

I hope you're all enjoying the weekend! Happy Day!

Gorgeous! I have dabbled in jewelry making as well. I am fortunate to have a beading store not too far away from my house. I have made quite a few "mother's" bracelets. LAtely, I just can't find the time!

I almost took a beading class and then thought to myself! What Am I Thinking?? I already stamp and scrap and tolepaint! That is enough.. so I just buy the pretty jewelry everyone else makes!
