Vintage Inspired Spring Necklace

When asked if I would like to participate in their Beading for Bloggers program. I was very excited to accept their invitation. For a designer it is always fun to get new products to work with, it is even more fun when the products are absolutely beautiful. I have loved everything that I have ever recieved from their company. I have especially liked the products in the last order that I recieved. The base metal items, brass bird, the open heart charm, the flower connectors, the filigree beads, the brass leaf and of course the amazing Padparadscha and Light Colorado  swarvoski crystal beads, they are all so beautiful.

Disclosure...As a reviewer of products at, I received the Swarvoski crystal beads as well as the brass filigree beads and components used in the project above free of charge. I have been asked to review these products and give my honest opinion of the products...positive or negative. I am not being compensated by for my endorsement as it pertains to the products received and reviewed.

If any of you are interested in my supply list, you can leave me a note in my comments and I will get back to you with the supplies that I used to make this fun vintage inspired necklace.

How Do I Say "I Love You"?

For me, Valentine's Day always means a stop at the antique store. As a child I kept a scrapbook of my cards that I had received from friends. The scrapbook was lost somewhere along the line, but the memories of how those little cards made me feel remains. I remember how carefully I chose each little card to say just the right thing to the person I was giving it to.  Such a sweet memory. The Valentine's Day cards were purchased in the antique shop in Spanish Fork, Utah. However you say it, always remember to say "I love you".
