Woah. Guys, I had never been to Hobby Lobby before in my whole life until yesterday. Needless to say, my life was changed FOREVER. I found so many wonderful and delightful things, including a variety of fantastic charms and jewelry-related paraphernalia. I made two bracelets from my goodies, one that's whimsical and one that's fairy tale related.
The whimsical one used a great piece of clock-chain for the band and then I dangled these great book charms off of it, along with little lock and key charms and an "M". I LOVE this bracelet, it's so cute and funky. I'm all about the charm bracelets lately.
The Fairy Tale bracelet is similar, but uses a delicate silver-tone bracelet instead of the clock band. I found more great book charms, but this time fairy tale related ones. I also added a red apple with a bite out of it, more lock and key charms, a crystal ball, and messages in a bottle along with another "M" charm.
I feel like a new goal of mine for this year is to learn more about jewelry-making. These were super simple projects, but I really enjoyed making them and I definitely want to try and make some more difficult pieces (potentially working my way into the world of beading, woah!).
Stay tuned for the next entry in this saga of awesome stuff I found at Hobby Lobby. I also picked up material to make a dress that I think will be pretty spectacular as well as two glass jars that look like lightbulbs that I think would make amazing oil and vinegar bottles.
My world is forever changed.
