Crafting with my mother in-law.

Last weekend we went up to Gillette, WY to spend the weekend with my in-laws. Charlene (Chad's mom) recently got into jewelry making, her best friend owns a bead shop that is located in the lower level of her home. In the past month and a half or so she has made almost 50 necklaces!! They were all very beautiful and she was even able to turn some family heirlooms in to beautiful pieces of jewelry!

She asked me if I wanted to make something so while we were up there I was able to make 2 necklaces for myself! She was excited that I was interested in the same craft as her! The first piece I made I used my moonstone pendant as the focal point.

On the second piece I used some rainbow magnetic beads my mother in-law had! What's awesome is they match my hair! lol! But they were kind of a pain in the ass to work with was having issues trying to make a focal point out of beads and then Charlene pulled out some butterfly pendents! I found the one I liked the best and then went to stringing beads. you cant tell in the picture but the small round beads are metallic and kinda look like that rainbow oil film on the surface of puddles.

I really enjoyed making these but I will wait on making it a actual hobbie b/c it's way more expensive then paper crafting! lol!! And I think Chad would kill me If I spent even more $$ on crafting then I already do!
