A Different Hobby this week…

Last Tuesday night I taught a bead class to some young girls at my old boss’s house, including 2 of my students from last year. (My former boss’s daughters) I was really sick but I ended up just doing the hard part of starting and finishing the necklaces while the girls just beaded. It was pretty satisfying, actually.

Then last night I wanted to be crafty but I really didn’t have any pics to scrap, so I made this necklace that I’ve had in my head for a couple years, inspired by this pic I saw in a beading magazine.

I love the way it turned out!!!

It is very funky, and yet still has my lovely ocean colors!!!

The colours of your necklace are wonderful! You must be just waiting for the right time to wear it.

I love teaching jewelry making - that's why I do it! I've been teaching for two years, and it's so great to see new people get into such a fun craft. I love the necklace - very cool! I haven't beaded in a while. I should whip out my Swarovski's and start going to town!
