Instead, yesterday Anna and I went to a beading store in Seattle and bought supplies to make several projects. Below is the double-strand bracelet I made from the necklace (will most likely make matching earrings later):
The second project was using the blue glass beads Paige sent me from Atlanta. I was inspired by an example of earrings at the beading store and made little dangling blue earrings with faux pearls. Thanks, Paige!!!
P.S. Anna was instrumental in helping me find little purple glass beads for the double-strand bracelet.
