Something Sparkly from the Farm
Blogger hate me. I've been trying this all day and it will not work...getting a tad frustrated here!
This is the jewelry I made to wear to Inkling's wedding. Mama bought me a fabulous outfit but I needed something sparkly to go with it. I looked, but wasn't impressed with my choices at Wal-Mart (where else do Farm Wives shop?) so I headed to their craft dept. After $8.63 in supplies, this is what I came up with. And I have extras left over to play with.
The colors are a little off in the photo, but you get the idea. They're not as deep in real life, more rosy pink, less earth toned. I like the earrings, but think they may be a bit much so I'll probably save them for a time I'm not wearing the necklace.
I'd forgotten how much I love beads until I started this. I probably restrung the necklace 4 or 5 times before I was satisfied. That's what's great about beads, they're so easy to change. I think I may make some stuff for Baby Girl and the other 2 flower girls to wear after the wedding. The real trick will be saving them until Easter... you didn't really think I'd make it until May did you?
