The thing that got me into crafting again was beading. I love to shop for beads as much as I used to love to shop for paper... love to shop for fabric, too... but that's a conversation for another day :). This was one of the first necklaces I made. I bought a bead kit from Ben Franklin Crafts, and I added some seed beads I got at a very small bead store in North Carolina near Asheville, NC when I was in college. (I can't ever get rid of anything!). Anyway, I wear this necklace all the time, and I still love it! I actually found another store on the Outer Banks of NC called Gardin of Beadin' that carries the centerpiece bead. I love the store... it's bright and airy! You should check it out if you are ever down there. It's at MP 6.0!


  1. Love it!! I so need to make more ear bobs! I have lost 1 earing from each of the sets I made at your house last time :-)

  2. Oh, no! We definitely need another craft night!
