MY FIRST JEWELRY PROJECT

Today was the 1st of 5 classes on jewelry making in a local bead store here. I thought it would be fun and get me out of the house for a few hours. Luckily one of the choices was Sunday mornings, which works perfectly for me since Chris is home.



We will learn 5 different techniques and I actually get to talk to other woman! I was pleasantly surprised and amazed how fast 3 hours flew by! So here is my first project....I plan to do some earings and a bracelette to match this week.....

My first jewelry project

Let me add that, this is not an original idea, I wish I could take credit for it. We had a bunch of different examples of necklaces made with the crimping technique to give us ideas. I chose one similar to this one as insperation..I used different colours and it looks like a cousin of the one that was in the store lol...It's certainly different but I like it..

I'm so glad you're getting out of the house and doing something you enjoy, being around others who enjoy the same thing is always fun too.

That is really cool looking and I like the colors a lot...yo do so well for being color blind!

I can't wait to see the other projects.

*hugs*

Wished they had a class like that close to me. I am still looking for a knitting class that I can go to. Necklace looks good. Keep up the good work.

Wow, I wish something like that was available in our area. I love the necklace but have to wonder if it sticks you? The colors are favorites.
