A Craft a Day Keeps the Blues Away...

Shopping at Walmart to get button covers and stunbled upon their new jewelry section. I decided to teach my friend Jackie how to make necklaces since she needed some inexpensive accessories since she is one the college budget.

Here is what we bought:

$3 - Metal Chain (it came with a few lobster clamps and jump rings)
$2 - Cross Rhinestone Set of Three
$2 - Vintage Inspired Skeleton Keys
I used some vintage pieces to add some glitz

Total for this project: $7 and I have three new necklaces - Talk about a fun mini craft night and another great bargain!!

I already had extra jump rings as well as a needle nose pliers for jewelry making.

I didn't get a photo of Jackie's because she had to get home to study for a paper BUT I did get a photo of mine.

What do you think?

I might have to make some up for Christmas and Jackie is now addicted to it! I am thinking of doing a class here in Walla Walla if anyone is interested?


  1. Emma, that necklace is sooooo cute! I definitely want one. :)

  2. Hi Emma,
    I just love the necklace. You did a super job and the best part is you are doing it on a Budget! Hugs from Debbie in Dallas
