Mother/Daughter Jewelry Party

Update on the Base and Bling Pendant Party:

 

Thanks to all the Moms and Daughters (and sons) who showed up!  We raised $177 for Operation Smile.  We had a fun evening with coconut shrimp, raspberries and chocolate, wine and fizzy drinks. 

 

The girls made necklaces for themselves, for their moms, for their teachers and for friends. It was fun to see the creativity flowing. Some of the necklaces used the Style Sheets provided, others used monogram initials, stamped images, B&T papers, small photographs and even hand drawn images. By the end of the evening even my son and his buddy begged to make “medallions” to wear 😉  

 

My son made a monogram medallion and his friend used the star inside circles on the Free Thinker Style sheet to create a “Captain America” medallion. Love it!!  They are both proud as can be…. 

Take a look at some of the creations:

Thanks for Stopping By!!

 

 

 

I’m offering a fun evening out for moms and daughters to enjoy crafting pendants together. You can make matching ones, complementary ones or completely independent pendants (get it?!).   Bring a friend! Make extras for your favorite neighbor, grandma, or teacher. Designing them is so quick, easy and fun! This is open to moms and daughters, MWD’s (moms without daughters) and DWM’s (daughters without moms)!

The pendants come in round or square shapes and in antiqued gold or silver tones and I have an entire jewelry bar full of accompanying charms and chains.  You can add a small family photo to the center of the medallion, use an image from the Storyteller or Free Thinker style sheets, or even stamp an image for stylish pendants.

Drop in anytime on Saturday evening, May 17th from 4 pm to 7:30 pm.  I’ll have a light buffet of food and beverages for you to enjoy as well.

Where:  1832 Birch Rd, McLean, VA 22101

When: Saturday, May 17th from 4:00 pm to 7:30 pm

Cost: $12 per necklace or 2 for $20 or 3 for $25.

I’m really excited about the new Jewelry line collection in our Spring Idea Book.  At first I resisted the notion of jewelry, when all I wanted was nice papers and stamps, but I ordered a set just to see and I love them!!  The new necklaces are fun and inexpensive, with a classic style that’s elegant.  You can add a small family photo to the center of the medallion, use the stickers assortment, or even stamp an image for stylish pendants.

14-ss-base-and-bling-itemsbase and bling necklace

When you attach some of the charms, it becomes even more special.  What’s nice about the jewelry is it comes in an faux antique gold or silver and prices run from $3.95 to $5.95.  It would make a unique project to do with daughters, nieces or friends.  Here’s a video that will help you see the possibilities and may inspire you to make one for yourself and a friend!  View the video below created by CTMH:

If any of these items are of interest to you for purchase, you can easily SHOP ON MY WEBSITE HERE.  Most items under 10 lbs. are only $4.95 shipping!  It’s such a good deal!  Have a great week!
