The pleasure of wearing something you made yourself is real!!! that feeling you have when someone asks “where did you get that from?” and you say “i made it myself”,is one of the best feelings one can ever have… besides being a fond of buying ready made jewelry,i don’t miss a chance to make my own master pieces(xD) … so few days back when i was just surfing on the internet, i saw beautiful beads bar necklaces being sold on etsy… i thought it would be a great idea to give them a try and they turned out to be pretty amazing!!! simple yet neat and trendy…. and i must say that every jewelry making beginner should give it a try… so here’s the tutorial i made:
