Today my M. turned 10 years old. Hard to believe, but it happens to the best of us, I suppose--we get older.
Part of what we did today was to make a necklace together. She loves the color orange and anything somewhat funky. So we decided on this style of necklace where the beads appear to "float" on the wire. She picked out the beads and put them in the order that she wanted and then I attached them for her and crimped them in place. It turned out really cute and she was very happy with it.
We had the book, Jewelry Just for YOU!, from the library and got the idea for this necklace on pgs. 46-49.
