I told you that I would keep you posted on any crafty creations that were inspired from a recent craft fair that I attended and wrote about in this post. Well, here it is. Here is my first attempt at jewelry making.
I don’t know that I would really call it jewelry making, because all that I did was attach some charms to a chain. And considering that fact that I made it in the car…at night….while I was waiting on Matt to pick up his Chinese take-out from Happy Cuisine.... well, I’m just sayin’ that I’m not sure most people would call that jewelry making, but you got to start somewhere I guess.
Anyway, the following supplies cost me around $12 with the weekly sales at my local craft store, and I was able to make two necklaces with enough chain left over for another long necklace: chain, clasp, one large charm, package of three small charms. I had the ribbon at home, so I didn’t need to buy that.
I saw similar necklaces at the craft fair selling for $20-$25. I fell in love with the vintage charm when I saw them. My necklaces averaged $6 to make myself. I’m happy with that price, and I really like the results:)
