What are you most proud of? Finished it! I am proud of the fact that I completed another project. Sometimes doing twenty things at once makes it hard to finish one so when one does get done I am grateful. _Has been given away to a local whom picked it out when she came by to say hi. :)

What advice would you give someone starting this project? As always take your time and while mulitasking is part of life be sure to do the dangerous stuff while you are able to concentrate on one thing and not cooking supper doing laundry paying bills or planing your food for the upcoming week. The time in making something can be overwhelming when you are always on the go be it kids, pets or just plain survial. Always keep an open mind and if you have to change your idea then be open to it, do not block yourself into a corner and demand perfection. I messed up many times on this and broke it twice and after cleaning resolder and then having to redo the chains and holes at certain points I still was able to complete a bracelet I would and do wear. Boom! :) ENJOY WHAT YOU DO- BE HAPPY- LIFE IS TOO SHORT-HAVE FUN WITH YOUR IDEAS-:) happy monday! sfol
