First Attempt at Jewelry-Making

Love it!  This was my first time making jewelry and it turned out great.  Not perfect, but good enough for a first attempt :)  I've bought many earrings, a necklace & bracelet from Joy Made Jewelry and she offers good stuff at great prices.  I decided to try a DIY kit after seeing a feature at Ruffles & Stuff.  It only took about 30 minutes for this novice to make my necklace and Joy offers step-by-step tutorials on her blog.  I give this project two thumbs up!  Wouldn't these make great gifts for Mother's Day?  Joy is offering a great special through March 27th to help raise money for a youth mission trip.  Visit her store for details.  The necklace kit I used is on sale for $1.99!

Well, you done good Mama! I should send you some of my pieces and parts for jewelry making. My daughter and I used to make earrings. I still wear pairs that she made me when she was little.
