So remember how I’m participating in the awesome 12 Months of Martha Challenge!? Well I’m a little behind…you know, I had a baby and all…but last month I was sent a box of the most awesome Martha Stewart jewelry supplies.
I actually love making jewelry, when I was 12 or so I sold jewelry at a local coffee shop and on Saturdays at a farmer’s market. I’d beg my mom to drive me almost an hour to this tiny specialty bead store. I’ve always loved finding random bead shops in the different towns I visit as well. So even though I don’t have much time for crafting, I thought it would be fun to show Gigi all the pretty goodies and have some special mommy-daughter time “crafting” together. Which means I make stuff and she rips apart my craft room.
Basically I just strung some gorgeous ombre beads on waxed thread and tied them to two strands of chain. Then I added one of Martha’s fab clam clasps (technically it’s a lobster clasp but it has a clam on it) and boom! I’ve been wearing it paired with some other necklaces. Gigi likes to wear it for a few hours than tells me to put it back on. Oh my bossy little dictator.
There are lots of other pretty goodies and I plan on playing with them soon!
