Self-Made Treasure

I posted previously the cheery little jump-rope necklaces at I’ve never been very crafty. I don’t even like carving pumpkins anymore. But I scheduled a play date with my 9-year-old niece last week, figuring we could be crafty together and I could create my own beaded necklace for the spring.


I used AndrĂ© Benjamin’s indian necklace that he shared on his 10 Essentials list as my source inspiration. My niece used “waterfalls” as inspiration for her own necklace, and she added a fish charm to hers, F.Y.I.

So there it is. Now I have not only a new necklace, but a happy memory to go along with it.
