Jewelry Class Last Night

Last night was the jewelry class that I had signed up to take with some friends. I had so much fun! This was the necklace and earrings that I made. Aren't you impressed? I know I was. I thought it turned out pretty cute. I have made a couple of pieces in the past, but now I know how to put the clasps on the right way. Most of the things I have made in the past I have used the elastic beading cord, and it breaks after a while. But last night we worked with wire and since I can do the clasps, I don't have to use that anymore. The elastic is great for the girls to work with, especially since the use mostly pony beads. The class was at Jo-Ann's, and was the beginning jewelry making and all my supplies came from there.

I really needed a new craft hobby! Lets see, that list now includes: stamping, card making, scrapping, crocheting, cake decorating, photography, cross-stitching, a little painting and now jewelry. Plus I know how to quilt a little and some sewing. I want to learn to sew better though. When I go to a craft store I don't think there is a department that I can pass up. Have a great rest of the weekend. I am enjoying my visit with my parents.

Great Job Gina!! I love using the wire it makes it so professional looking. I too can not pass up any isle in the craft store. I need another hobby like I need a hole in my head, but I just can't help myself. I just finished up sewing the top piece of a quilt I have been working on. Took me FOREVER! Have a great day and TFS your jewelry!-Erica
