I just wanted to share some of the necklaces that I've made recently. These are probably my favorite pieces to make. I've always had a hard time finding any kind of pre-made personalized anything because of my name: Shanda. As if it's not a common name. I mean, it's not totally common, but I know three other women in my town alone named Shanda. So, I don't get it. The first name necklaces I ever created were for myself. I enjoy making them so much because they're personal, specifically made for whomever's name they happen to made of. I've been using colored wire and chains. But sometime in the near future I'll be making them in sterling silver.
Making jewelry has got to be one of my favorite hobbies. It's one of those things that just came naturally to me, like drawing and painting. I've been doing it, and wanting to do it, for as long as I can remember. Anyway, I have a ton of new ideas and I can't wait to share them all with everyone.
