A New Hobby


A while back, a beloved beaded bracelet of mine broke. I kept the beads, determined to fix it myself. Then, a few months ago, I finally set out on the task to find supplies to mend my bracelet.

Long story short, I got inspired, bought tons of jewelry making supplies, ordered bead catalogs, and scowered many "how to's" on the web.

Next, I found a simple project; I made my mom wine glass charms/sun catchers for mother's day.

After that, for the next couple months, I got busy, and didn't have any time to devote to my new hobby.

Recently, I started feeling creative again, and I bought a pendant which I absolutely adore, so I decided to make a necklace to show it off.

And as far as my beloved bracelet goes, let's just say it has seen better days. (a lot of the beads are missing, so reforming the bracelet, as it was, is impossible. But I will use what is left for another project.)
