How do I make the holiday’s special. I make gifts. I love to give people unique gifts so the only way to do that is to make them. I love this site Fire Mountain Gems. If you click here you can see videos on how to make necklaces. They even tell you what to order. I started this because I fell in love with some designs featured at those super home parties. The design was out of my budget so I was able to replicate it with “inferior” beads. I mean the beads were not the real gemstones for $10 instead of $120.00 price tag on the home show necklace. I just couldn’t justify the cost of $120.00. It is a great feeling to make something original I find beading to be a great stress release. I have even hosted necklace making parties. Happy memory making one bead at a time! Yes, my son helps make necklaces for the special people in his life too. His grandmothers and mother just love his original artwork!
