Trading Post - A pretty bracelet

Yesterday, I had a "playdate" with Amie from Kitty Cats & Airplanes.  We met for the first time "in real life" and, even though we are both recovering from a nasty bug, it was a great experience! We had decided while planning our meeting that the goal was to exchange skills and I think we did achieve that quite well.


Amie makes lovely jewelry. Check out this fabulous necklace. The lady has some serious skills!


She was kind enough to bring her gear: it's all nicely organized in a wheeled tote (very cool) and she demonstrated jewelry 101 all the while designing a gorgeous necklace for me out of our combined bead supplies. With her simple explanations (and a trip to Hobby Lobby) I was even able to use some hoop beads I found last november at an estate sale to make myself a cute bracelet last night. 


Thanks for the idea Amie, it turned out awesome.
