      I know – I’m going to have to pace myself, or else my craft room is going to be overflowing with DIY jewelry! It’s a lot of fun, though!

      I hope so, Marilyn! I feel like there is always a bit of nerves involved when gifting a homemade item. Nevertheless, I’m still pretty excited to gift these!

    Beatufiul, Tara! The only way I can manage jewelry is if it’s super easy, so this is perfect!

      That’s the way I feel, too, Sky. I’m just dipping my toes into the jewelry ocean, so this craft was perfect!

    Wow, these are adorable, I love them! Easy + inexpensive = my kinda craft! As much as I love these, I adore the concept of, “random acts of kindness”… beautiful idea! xo

    Awww random acts of kindness is such a great idea! Teachers are unappreciated too often. I’m sure they loved your beautiful neclaces! 🙂

      I agree, Kadie (and not just because I used to teach!) – I haven’t gifted them yet, but I will this week!
