This Week's Project & BOOK GIVEAWAY!

In celebration of the first day of spring, I am very excited to offer two copies of my book, A Bead in Time, up for grabs!

Just leave a comment here and next Saturday, I will use a random number generator to select two winners. I can't wait!

Now, on to this week's project... I had a lot of fun working with the gold toned and swarovski crystal beads I selected from Artbeads.com.

I took several different photos of this bracelet so you could get an idea of the look. It was simple, but it is actually quite mesmerizing! :)

The earrings are sort of long which is because my hair is a little longer right now and I wanted to be able to see these adorable little crystal butterflies.

The bracelet dangles are SO fun and make me smile, which is always a good sign after making a piece of jewelry. I hope you are all enjoying some great spring weather this weekend! I'm counting down the days now till the drive-in movie theater opens (on April 2nd), yay!

Your dandelion bracelet is beyond adorable! I am looking forward to catching up on more of your posts,so I'm sure you will be hearing from me again.
