I have always loved Andrea Singarella's jewelry. I was recently drooling on her blog and saw that she is doing a Vintage Trinket Jewelry e-course where she actually shows you how she makes her gorgeous jewelry, and it's only $10.00. Seriously. So I signed up, and it was totally awesome!
This is my first necklace. Even though I live in Virginia, I am a transplant from California, so I made a vintagy necklace with a beachy theme. It has some shell beads, a starfish charm, and a By The Sea tag, which had a blue patina until I varnished it. Grrrr.
Here is a smaller necklace I made to wear together with the bigger necklace. It has a little turquoise starfish bead.
And here is a necklace I made as a gift for someone as part of the Facebook Pay it Forward challenge I did.
It says "Be The Change", short for "Be the change you want to see in the world." This is supposedly a quote by Gandhi, or an inspiration thought inspired by Gandhi, but I'm not certain of its authenticity beyond being a favorite Internet quote.
Regardless of who said it, it's still a good thing to say.
