One of my New Year's resolutions was to learn to make jewelry.
Now, I still haven't learned, but just like when I made my first quilt and I had a case of beginner's luck, so it goes with the jewelry.
A sweet, generous friend cleaned out her jewelry box and gave me all of her religious medals. I am so inspired by the beautiful creations at Catholic Bling.
So, yeah, I grabbed some stretchy cord from Hobby Lobby and I made a few things. It's not true necklace-making, I am doing, I suppose (though the girls have been wearing them to school). But until I can get a block of time to take an actual jewelry-making class... y'know, stuff that requires needle-nosed pliers and jump rings.... then I am ok with stretchy necklaces. It's certainly cheaper!
