One of my hobbies is beading and making new jewelry out of bits of old or orphaned jewelry. Lost an earring? Don’t despair: Turn the other one into a necklace!
I’ve found that beading is therapeutic, creative and fun. And I love the colors and texture.
Here’s the first one. Mr. HouseofBeck also proved quite adept at attaching chains to each other and twisting wires to hold beads.
Apologies for any lighting issues and subsequent blurriness! It’s on my to-do list to set up a proper background and lighting (or hire a photog).
