Memorial Day weekend was a weekend of crafting. I already shared my Jewelry Rack with you, so I thought I would share my other project too.
Beads are like SUPER trendy right now. And I absolutely love it. I borrowed a necklace from my friend C one night (really pretty coral colored braided bead necklace) and I fell in love with it. I looked on the interwebs and they’re kind of pricey…like $30-40. I knew I could totally make this myself for cheaper so I did (with the help of Pinterest of course).
I went to a local bead store and picked up some supplies. Beads, jump hooks, 24ish inches of chain, clasp, and these knot covering bead tips that are pretty essential. I used doubled up thread with the beads as well.
You can see some detailed instructions here.
It was a little challenging because my bead tips were a little small. But in the end I’m happy with the result…and it really didn’t take very long to put together…probably around and hour or so.
On a separate note, I thought I would share the other swag I scored at the yard sale I mentioned in the last crafting post.
I got 6 cocktail glasses, the AWESOME spice rack, cool vase for my wine corks, and this cute vintagey bag…all for the bargain price of $10!!! ($17 total with the frame from the jewelry rack).
