I spent the past weekend at my parents house for a little vacation from the city. My mom has started a new hobby and from the second I saw all her fun new tools I was hooked. I mean, like I really NEED another hobby or craft to keep me busy. The 500 I already have at home aren’t enough, right? But after I saw what I could make there was no turning back.
My mom has taken up jewelry making and sucked me right into her bead world. Now all I can think about is beads and how I can get more and what I can make with them. Trouble for me? I think so.
I am a very tactile person and I could spend hours touching all the beads to see how they feel and what sounds they make when I rub my fingers along the strands.
All the pretty colors are so inspiring
So far I haven't made anything crazy just a few simple pieces that not only jazz up my plain Jane outfits but they make the top of my dresser colorful and bright too.
Amazonite, pearl and crystal necklace
Chunky green serpentine necklace
Olive Jade and freshwater pearl necklace
calcite coin necklace
I've made a few other things but no pictures of those yet. At the rate I am making everything and buying new beads my jewelry box will soon be completely full. If it gets too full you might find some of these things on my etsy store soon.
PS- Can we talk about the major sun damage on my chest- hello freckles! Reminder for all those teenagers out there- the sun catches up to you sooner then you think. I am 28 and those freckles you see are thanks to all that lifeguarding and sun worshiping I thought would make me look tan and pretty. Well sun damage is not pretty- so wear your sunscreen!!
Ok, off my soapbox now :)
