My fab husband “allowed” me to drop him and the kids off at home and wander around the craft store for over an hour last night! It was therapeutic certainly – I needed a “night out” even if it was a short one.
I was on a quest to pick up some ribbon to make some hairbows for my daughter – nothing fancy since I’m really not wanting to get into making all those insane “designer” hairbows. I have enough friends I can order them from!
I was also on the hunt for some trinkets and bits to make a necklace. I found a sweet “steampunk” style necklace over on Pinterest and I was dying to try and recreate it! I found a lot of similar charms at the craft store. Just missing a small rose-looking “bead” of some sort. The necklace I’m trying to recreate is pictured to the left.
I found some light silver wings – which I’m not crazy about so I picked up some metallic coppery paint and some metallic “gun metal” colored paint and will see which color will mesh best with the other charms I purchased.
I’m excited to see how this turns out! I haven’t made jewelry (or anything else for that matter) in awhile now!
