New Adventure Jewelry


As mentioned in recent posts, I'm so honored to have been selected as one of five "Creative Circle Ambassadors" for the Cousin Corporation.

This is the inaugural year for the Creative Circle program and they have done an impressive job of pulling all the details together and welcoming us to the family...yes, I have some new cousins, yay!

My first official jewelry making assignment is to create a piece using only materials from the giant box of beads they sent me AND...using the state of Florida as inspiration!!

Wow!! If you have my book you know I'm on cloud nine. However, before I could get started, inspiration got the best of me!!

I discovered these great beads that are very similar to the color of the Cousin logo, black findings and black wire and knew before I could get started on the Florida project, I needed a bracelet to represent the Creative Circle adventure!

So, here is my first UNofficial project using only materials from the box and I had a BLAST making it! This is already feeling like a bracelet I don't want to take off because of the meaning behind it...yes, I have been known to sleep in newly made jewelry when that happens! I am not afraid to admit to nerdy jewelry making behavior.

I hope you are also having a creative weekend. As always, please share what you are working on by leaving links in the comments. :)
