Birthday cards with Jennifer

Yesterday Jennifer had another one of her card making meetups. She had 3 cards along with envelopes on the agenda. I had such a good time making these cards. I felt like I have been doing this forever though I haven't made any cards since a long time. Here are the cards we made.

Took some time to make few cards

It's been about a month almost that I made these cards, but I forgot to post them here. I went to one of the card making meetups I used to attend, after a long time. The format was, make as many cards as you want in a certain and pay few bucks per card. So I went almost towards the end of the session after my long bike ride. But still got to make about 5 cards that I really loved. I can't tell you how good it feels to get back to some creative projects. It takes my mind off of all the shit that goes on in life and just think creatively. On top of it, I love it when the cards come out good. Here are the cards I made.

Multi strand Pearl Necklace

My love for pearls only grows by the day. They look so simple but elegant. It's so easy to get a great look without all the bling. I think you can just carry off a simple pearl strand necklace with anything you wear. 

This time I got a chance to make a three strand pearl necklace. It's a custom order from my friend P. Thanks to my friend for giving me an opportunity to get back to jewelry making and show my love for pearls. It took a long time for me to do all the three strands with pearl knotting.


With pearl knotting, you have to be very careful to get the knot really close to the pearl, otherwise it doesn't look good. So I had to pay a lot of attention to each knot. It so happened that I made all three strands and then hooked up to the clip and at the end, one of the hooks broke. So I had to cut each pearl out of the knotted necklace, and then knot them all again. Glad at least it was just one strand. But look at the grand look it gets. I hope the friend I made it for, likes it because I love it.
