Sometimes I get the bug to make some jewelry. It could be because I am looking for the perfect necklace to go with an outfit, or I find something in a magazine that I like, or maybe even find a cute charm or some beads that I can see made into earrings, necklaces, or bracelets.
A few years ago I received a kit from my parents with tons of beads in different colors, sizes, and styles. They also gave me a book on beading. I taught myself some techniques and have been making jewelry ever since. I am sure that if I took a class I would learn many helpful techniques but for what I am doing, my skills are fine. I find it very therapeutic and would recommend you try this if you haven’t yet.
Here is a photo of the necklaces and the pair of earrings I made yesterday.
