Jill Schwartz for Vintage Groove

My "C" necklace from Vintage Groove!

In January I reported on the launch of a Jill Schwartz jewelery making line. I have always loved her jewelery, so buying her specially designed components and chain is a dream come true. The Making Memories people have done a beautiful job launching this line. I was happy to see them back at the summer CHA show this week in Chicago. Everyone was encouraged to make a necklace in their booth and we selected three components to add to our chain. Very generous make and take! Thank you!

The Vintage Groove collection is on the Making Memories website. Take a peak. They have many demos and sample pieces with advice from Jill herself.

Another great week has ended. Here are my fabulous Sunday Beading links!

As part of the "Start a New Hobby" theme running through About.com's hobby blogs this week, Tammy takes a moment to think about jewelry as more than a hobby. What about jewelry as a job?
