Jewelry Making Lesson

While we were up in Oregon for the holidays, we visited our good friends Jennifer and Wayne We had such a great time catching up, drinking wine, playing Wii and...making jewelry! Jennifer has an impressive "lab room" full of jewelry-making tools and materials. She showed us how to stamp, oxidize, polish, assemble and create the little bead charms. At the end of the lesson, I had helped create four necklaces, including the one pictured on the left. These will make great gifts for the mom's in our family. For a non-crafty person, I had so much fun! I really think Jennifer could make this her full-time job, she is so talented and creative. Check out her finished jewelry projects!
