Sunday Sorting

 There is nothing like a move to shake up your collecting habits.  When we moved to this new house a year and a half ago I made a promise to finally sort and properly store all the jewelry I have collected and made.  I spent a few days last month on that project and soon I will be 100% finished with the whole re-organization of my jewelry.  The best part of this project was locating all my jewelry and choosing groups/themes for filing.  This is one grouping.  These necklaces represent a few of the amazing gifts of jewelry I have received from my talented friend Karen Arts.

And now the Bead Blogger Links. Have a great Sunday!

Jean uses DIY videos (see a cool example of one) to help her learn jewelry techniques, but long ago the best way to learn was from an expert teacher like Eni Oken. See jean's Wabi Sabi ring inspired by Eni!
