Girls. Giggles, Glitter and Glue Blog Hop Day 2

Welcome to the second day of the Girls, Giggles, Glitter and Glue Blog Hop.  I'm glad that you have come by again today.  Please be sure to follow Peg's Crafting Corner and leave a comment on each day's projects to be entered into the giveaway.  I will pick a winner on Monday. 

Yesterday I had shared with you my first necklace that I had created in quite a while and was telling you how it had started something new for me.  Today I'm going to share what the "new" is and where it will be taking me.  This is the second piece of jewelry I've made in the last few weeks.  It was a whole new attempt at jewelry making for me.  You are all the first to see it besides my family.  I was looking through a magazine and kept seeing some awesome multi-strand necklaces in the pictures and kept thinking it would be fun to do one.  At that time I wasn't sure just how to go about it, but kept picturing the idea in my head.  I knew I already had all of the beads and would only need to get the chain and the chandelier to complete it so on one of my journeys to the craft store one weekend I made sure to pick it up.  I began stringing each of the 5 strands that I would need and when I finished them I attached them to the chandelier.  I didn't like the way it looked!  I spent one Sunday afternoon unstringing each of the pieces and then spent the rest of the night restringing everything and this is how it turned out.  That week got really busy for me and I was unable to finish it up and it laid on my desk waiting to be finished.  Last Saturday when I was supposed to be doing other things I found myself drawn to this necklace and wanting to finish it so I did. 

Now that I have this piece finished I am moving onto the next and then the next and so on.  Now you may be wondering what I'm going to be doing with all of these pieces, right?  I've decided to spend as much time as I can creating them and then will be selling them at local craft fairs, vendor events and who knows maybe I'll even open on online shop.  What do you think?  Should I try my hand at selling online, too? 

I know one things for sure, I've been bitten by the jewelry making bug and I'm going to have to sell it or I will have to find a larger crafting space.  That's how the necklace from yesterday started a new adventure for me.  I hope you have enjoyed this piece today, too. 

Thanks for stopping by and allowing me to share my work with you! Be sure to stop by tomorrow and see my final project for the blog hop and don't forget to stop by on Monday to see if you are the winner of the prize I'm giving away. 
Happy Creating Everyone!
