Make a Pave Link Necklace

Pave Link Necklace with heart claspDo you need a little instant-craftification?  Stressed out?  Need some sass in your life?  Or maybe a present for your BFF?  I’ve got it.  Right. Here.
Pave Link Necklace I found these cute pave links at Hobby Lobby along with the chain on the sides.  Use two 12mm jump rings to attach the pave link to the sides of chain.  This gives it a stronger and thicker looking connection.
Heart Clasp from BeadalonThis is a clasp I found in my Beadalon stash.  Don’t get attached (no pun intended).  I don’t think they make them anymore, but it never hurts to google “Beadalon Upper Clasp heart.”  You just never know what ebay or etsy might have.  There are thousands of cute clasps you can attach with single jump rings.

Yep.  You’re finished.
Pave Link Necklace with heart claspAhhhh.  How about that!!??

This is a super cute necklace that would be great to layer with other beaded chains .

In other news, I just got back from a work trip that went from Jan. 31st to Feb. 10th.  I worked for Jesse James Beads during the To Bead True Blue show in Tucson.  It was a blast catching up with all my jewelry making friends!!

Needless to say I’m fried though.  Blogging is good for the soul during these times because I can park my booty on the couch with the Hallmark channel on, edit pictures and write.

Tomorrow afternoon we are heading to Ft. Wayne to pick up some sugar cookie supplies because it’s VALENTINE’s DAY and I have to make sugar cookies.  Have to.  I’ve had this idea to make squirrels holding conversation hearts for a year now.  This is why you should follow me on Instagram because I’ll post pictures of them.  Everyone loves a squirrel sugar cookie.

I’m signing off for the night.  

Sweet. Dreams.
