JewelryThey say a picture is worth a 1,000 words.  Well right now if you could see me I am sure it would be that much and more.  http://www.creativehomeartsclub.com/Projects/Project.aspx?id=104864  Is a link to a project I created for Creative Home Arts.  I am a self taught beader and the same goes for crafting.  I fell in love with this piece as I was creating it.  Yes, it is simple.  But to me it is beautiful and seeing it in print makes it even more special.  I usually give away my work to friends and family.  But this one I think will remain a keeper.  The products are from http://www.firemountaingems.com/  They have a fantastic selection.  I will post some paper crafts Monday or Tuesday.  Have a good one!
