I found these pendant discs at Michaels yesterday. I was armed with a 50% coupon and planned to buy Sawyer a Christmas present (a Thomas wooden train set). When I got to the train section, I had to distract Sawyer. I pointed to a jewelry-supply stand and asked "what's that?" as I tried to make my move to grab the train. His sweet reply was an "uh-a-uh?" Like, "I don't know." But then I realized I couldn't grab the train just yet, there was some cute stuff I needed to look at first. I meant to distract Sawyer, and distracted myself instead. Ha!
I have a very small amount of jewelry making supplies at home (I should use that term loosely) and whipped these up last night after the kids were in bed. Well, most of them were in bed. Taylor was still awake and had to help pick up all the little jumprings that fell to the floor because my back hurt too much to bend.
And then, I couldn't stop there. I've had this on my mind since I saw this cute barrette. This was not my idea. I stole it.
I used the basics from this tutorial and made my first attempts. I made a set of two in a matter of minutes. (Oh, I bought the barrette blanks at Jo-Ann in the jewelry aisle for like $1.) The best part? Spenser is really wearing one. The girl that hates hair accessories, especially barrettes, is wearing one. Like, right now!
