My oldest got her ears pierced at the end of last summer, and just recently I've allowed her to wear dangly earrings.

She’s been asking me to help her make earrings ever since!

So I pulled out my bead crate (wish I had thought to take before and after pictures!) and we spent a day sorting through all the beads, fastenings, earring loops/hoops/studs…it was all kinds of fun! Some of the beads I have I got when I was her age!

The things I keep…sigh….

We made these cute glass bird earrings. The white ones are from ceramic beads I got in my teens (my dad was always bringing me home interesting beads and baubles).

Sorry that the pictures kind of suck, but as you can see we organized the beads into different baby food jars and such….I’ll have to take a picture of the finished product since we decided to put all the jars on a shelf for easier jewelry making access.

I've forgotten how fun jewelry making is! Doubly fun when working with my child!

Such fun! I totally hear you about saving random stuff - it seems as soon as I finally part with something, I end up wanting it almost instantly :)
