What are you most proud of? Making my mom happy! It's been along time since I have been able to make handmade items at home. so, Mom hasn't gotten anything made by me in quite awhile, and~ I am glad I can give it to her in person this Mother's day!! She has kept many things I've made her over the years and she knows I am happiest when I can create things with my hands~. She knows what makes me happy - so that makes two of us :)

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Do your research. There are a lot of knock offs of these type jewelry supplies! You need to know what your paying for and trust your supplier! I only use pieces for my jewelry that are consistent and top quality. I use 925 sterling core beads, mostly all glass but for design purposes and same nice quality some clay beads, .925 sterling snake chains, check the clasp type and size always. measure your wrist with a seamstress measuring tape and add an inch/or better yet an inch an a half depending on number of beads being added and liking of a tighter fit or looser fit. If you are just wanting to make these for tweens/costume jewelry there are acrylic beads w/alloy available for a very cheaper variation. I sell mine at 30$ for one like the bangle shown above; ( I do take personal requests for all occasions/themes and colors/I email a picture of finished project for approval prior to shipping. I ship USPS w/tracking) I ship as soon as I have materials, usually on hand but not always depending on what you ask for. I do order materials several times a month and have designs on hand at all times. swavorski crystal beads cost a bit more, color braided leather w/silver plate clasp bracelet is less. Retail is a lot more as the companies have a lot of overhead. I make these at home as a craft hobby :) ~choose from a variety of colors and charms and spacers, and have a bracelet making party :) It's fun, you'll love it! Blessings to you, Robin
