Getting Bit by the Beading Bug.

Hey everyone! For those of you who don't know, I'm very into making bracelets and other forms of jewelry. Lately, however, it seems like I've been bitten by the beading bug. I'm not sure if it's because I want some new baubles and want the best look possible, or because I simply find it relaxing. Either way, I've decided to show off some of the "rocks that I got." Well, more like shiny bead stuff that I made.
 Between elephants and hamsa hands, I've been busy! I'm excited about my latest projects because they are so pretty and are perfect for spring, such as the starfish bracelet featured below. As school ends, I'll be fast at work with some new beads.
I get my beads from many different craft stores. They can be expensive, so the trick is to get the coupons, and if they have student discounts (for my college readers out there), use them. One of my favorite steals was this hamsa bracelet below. Between the hands and the beads, it only cost five dollars to make. That's a steal, because these bracelets can be pricy.
Do you have a hobby? Or do you want to know about beading? Let me know in the comments below! If popular, I'll do some DIYs over the summer!


  1. In LOVE with all of these. They are so cute. You have an eye for these things, I can tell. :) Great job!

  2. These are great! I want to make my own jewelry too. Did you buy a kit or do you find everything at bead stores? I love jewelry and I want to make my own, this post inspired me!!

    1. Aw that makes my day! I find everything at bead stores. Jo Anne Fabrics often has sales and great coupons, while AC Moore has the best quality.
