10 Minute Jewels DIY



If I was stranded on a desert island, the only three stores that I would need would be Home Depot, Michael’s (Crafts) and Barnes and Noble.  I love making both useless and useful things from goodies that I find at the craft store and could entertain myself for years with all the projects that I find there.  This week, it is the jewelry aisle .  I really don’t like spending a lot of money on jewelry, especially when most of my wardrobe these days is casual.  I have found that you can create trendy jewelry at home and have a lot of fun.  Of course, when I see the choices, I must make something in every color
