Happy Easter Weekend!

I love trying different things when it comes to arts and crafts, I have tried just about everything I can think of at least once and have all the supplies to prove it! Oh, except a kiln- I am not allowed to have one for Scott's fear of me burning the house down. It's ok. There's no room for it anyway. So, pottery I have tried, I just didn't run out and buy all the supplies to do it at home. I'm getting better at doing that, buying more craft stuff. Really, I am.

UNTIL... I wanted to make my own necklace! There are so many unbelievable jewelry artists out there, that I just had to try it for myself. Having most of the basics, I only ran out and bought chain. Luckily, I already had Liver of Sulfur from a project 'gone wrong' that Andrea and I tried a few years back. So, I take my shiny new silver plated chain {that was only $1.99 for 6 feet, honey, I swear} and I oxidize it to this pretty black-ish color and then mess and mess and mess til I came up with this. I like it. It turned out ok for my first try. I think I'll wear it for Easter!
Happy Easter Weekend everyone!

LOVE your necklace!!! Love the big rhinestone pendant, especially! I've been collecting some fun vintage bling to try my hand at jewelry making too.

Happy Easter!
