Hello, and welcome to my new blog! I've been meaning to do this for so long! All I needed was a reason, and the Quick Fire Blog Hop was just the push I'd needed to get things rolling. Thanks, Erin, for a push in the right direction!
My entry, Turquoise Tumble, uses materials from Michaels Stores just like Erin's. I love the jumbled feeling of the strands even though they're patterned. Here's a link to the instructions for the original Toast of the Town necklace designed for Halcraft USA by Erin Prais-Hintz. It's a design that is so easy to make your own, and there are multiple ways to wear it, as well.
Even though I'm an experienced beader, I find it so relaxing to just sit back and make a project that someone else designed, especially one that is just stringing, as this one is. It's a great beginners' project as well, so if you want something that will use up a few strands of your favorite beads and you can easily make while watching a movie, this is the one for you!
I'm looking forward to writing more posts about beads and crafting in general, as well as becoming a part of the blogging community!
