This Week's Project: Quick & Easy Gift

This time of year is a perfect time to create quick and easy gifts that I can have on hand to give out to people when the time seems right.

It's a lot of fun to surprise them and also a great way to push my creativity into "quick & easy mode". Sometimes I will remember the night before I need to have a few gifts for people, so the ability to create something fun and simple with materials I already have becomes necessary. At first it might seem a little overwhelming, but once I get started, I get so excited and could create all night!

This bracelet uses just a simple beading component that I wrote about week or so ago. As I was looking through bead containers to figure out what to use with this component, I came across some black rubber tubing from Fire Mountain Gems. I used black beadalon wire and then just used a silver toned clasp to finish it off. It's so lightweight and easy to wear. The sparkle is extra cool too!

I hope you are all having fun creating this weekend!! I'd love to hear your ideas for quick and easy jewelry gifts! :)

Thanks guys! I gave it away today and after getting over being surprised by it, I think she really liked the way that component sparkles. :)
