During the month of March, we had a kind of "choose-your-own-adventure" prompt, with several project options. One of the possibilities was to make our own piece of jewelry that featured our word in some way. Though I've dabbled in a few jewelry-making projects (enough to have purchased many of the tools and supplies associated with jewelry-making...ha!), I don't consider jewelry my strong suit. I figured that with a little help from Pinterest, though, I would be able to identify a project within my skill boundaries.
I scanned my Jewelry Projects Pinterest board, and came across a link to Adrianne's book page necklace project at Happy Hour Projects. It sent me dashing to my supply stash, as I remembered certain creative supplies that I've been hoarding, unused, for probably eight years.
|Even though I didn't end up using these, I just had to share these lovely, contented faces from the past.
Adrianne's directions for adding a "hope" charm and a bead at the top.

I enjoyed this project so much, and had all the tools and materials out and ready, so I made one additional necklace with a vintage photo.
If I manage to find more of these frames and glass, I could imagine making many, many more pendants from my collection of vintage photos.
What do you think? What materials from your stash would make their way onto your pendants?
