Found Treasure Between Mother and Daughter

I am fairly new on this site, visiting frequently for tips on my new found love of jewelry making. About a month ago I decided to spend some bonding time jewelry making with my 13 year old daughter.

Beach Bling - Glass and Plastic Beads, Metal Chain and Charms.

The intent was only for fun–Well we didn’t know how much fun we’d have! We ended up spending through the night making jewelry.

We were having so much fun creating that we had to force ourselves to finally go to bed around 2 a.m. Now every weekend we get together making more creations. We began to share our creations, just to show off what we’ve put together, by way of text pics to family and friends and their responses were overwhelming.

We did not know others would fall in love with our creations. Needless to say, it is time well spent not only as fun bonding time but we are so glad that we found our treasure within–the art of jewelry making! We are humbly proud of our creations and wear our pieces now everywhere that we go and to our surprise, people notice them.

Butterfly Effects - Jade Glass Beads, Coconut Shell Charms, Metal Beads and Wire.

We get so many comments–alot of times we don’t even know how to respond but with a simple thank you. It’s overwhelming. I have included some pics of some of our very first pieces 🙂 A lot of people are pushing us to get into business, so we did come up with a name.
