Blissfully Beautiful

So as part of my journey to a new me, I want to craft more. My major craft is making necklaces. I wanted to share this with all of you. I started making jewelry when I was in high school. I had a friend that I would hang out with her and her friends on Friday nights and have Craft Night. Most of the other people that attended, were into jewelry making and so I got into it too.

So the first thing I do is select a pendant.

The I sort through all of my beads and pick a combination of beads that I like.

For this necklace I used a combination of pearls, jasper, and silver spacer beads. I think there might have been other types of gems used, but I don’t know. I believe the pendant is made of hemalyke. Then I lay out the beads in a pattern that I like.

Then I string it on acuflex and it’s good to go.

So in honor of my re-launch, I want to do a giveaway. When I reach 50 followers, I will do a giveaway of a necklace made by me. I will post more details when it happens, so please follow me and you could win a gorgeous necklace made by moi!
