So after making the quick coffee bean locket last week for coffee lovers, I was lamenting the fact that whole coffee beans smell wonderful, but it’s not like you could just open up your locket and enjoy one in case of an emergency.  I mean, I suppose you could, but eating a bean is not… Continue Reading…

When I sat down to stamp this bracelet, I had visions of making it much more fancy.  And complicated.  But I got this far and couldn’t bear to add more because I love, love the simplicity of it (and the whimsical dandelion pattern)!  So I’ll be sharing a very basic piece today, and who knows,… Continue Reading…

Today’s bracelet project is a little more on the time-consuming side (plan for this one to take most of an hour) but the offset to it is that the supplies are pretty darn cheap and you have SO many ways to make it your own!  Part of what took me so long was that I… Continue Reading…

So you may have seen last week that I got into setting eyelets.  And yeah, I am hooked.  I thought it would be a great addition to this necklace idea that I have had in mind for a little while.  I wanted a wide charm, but attaching the chain directly the blank doesn’t allow it… Continue Reading…
