A Day with the Girls & a Giveaway!

A few weekends ago Crystal invited Heidi and me to her home for an afternoon of jewelry-making. I was VERY excited to see these lovely gals, since I hadn't seen them since we were roomies at Silver Bella. I packed up a few supplies (LOL!) and headed to Crystal's beautiful home.

We had a lovely afternoon of chatting and creating. Her dining room table became our workshop and the pliers and beads and jump rings were flying (literally!) It was SO nice to have an afternoon devoted to just crafting with friends. With two young daughters, I rarely get such a luxury ~ but it is one that I hope to have more often! Below are my finished pieces.

Some bracelets with beads and dangles. I got the idea to use the buttons from my friend Sarah. I just love how she stacks buttons in her jewelry ~ I had to try it too!!! That blue bracelet is my favorite piece.

A few floral bracelets.

These yummy mother-of-pearl beads came from a necklace that I found at an antique store. The necklace was a little too chunky for me, so I harvested the beads for a new one.

I love these together! They will be perfect to wear this Spring!

And this is the giveaway!
A sweet and Springy daisy bracelet.

If you'd like a chance to win it, just leave a comment on this post telling me what you would love to make if you had a free afternoon with your crafty girlfriends.
I'll pick a winner on Sunday.
(If you don't have a blog, be sure to include an email address so I can contact you if you win!)

We have a winner!
Lucky #13!!
