Crafty Thursday

I haven't really ventured into all areas of crafting land. Specifically, jewelery making- I have tried and I am too much of a perfectionist. On the other hand, I am constantly drawn in to jewelry ideas that you can make yourself.

So, instead of actually trying something simple I attempted this pendent. It is supposed to be "natural" looking but I still was not happy with it. Like I said- I want everything to be perfect- which doesn't help when you are trying to make complicated necklaces.

Who doesn't remember making friendship bracelets in elementary school?

So I could not, for the life of me, find a tutorial on how to make these bracelets that are all over Pinterest. I absolutely love them and I want to make them myself but- no luck. I am about to resort to just buying one!
 P.S. If you happen to know my husband feel free to point him in this direction for gift ideas!


Happy Crafting,
