i am so happy to share with everyone a project i spent many, many hours on this past summer. i had the opportunity to design some jewelry for Blue Moon Beads for a line called "Tokens", sold exclusively at Michaels Craft Stores. The line is brand new this month, and it looks like both websites haven't been updated to include the collections yet, but i have snapped a few photos of some of the charm pendants i made to share with you! they are still in their packaging, my apologies, but i will share more photos again when i have jewelry creations finished to model!
the idea behind 'tokens' is the notion that you want a little token of something to remind you of special memories, be they people, places, hobbies, or things. and that's what 'tokens' supplies! there are a plethora of charm pendant pieces and just loads of really cute, trendy, fun charms from a huge variety of subjects to add to them. there are also matching findings and such included with the collection to help you create a quick and easy jewelry piece on the spot.
i was at my local Michaels last night, and they are actually having a HUGE sale on beads and beading supplies right now, so now would be the perfect time to go! i was both excited and sad to see that the majority of the Tokens collection i really wanted extra pieces of was sold out at my local store, so i am hoping they get more stock in soon so i can pick up a few more things! :)
if you happen to pick up some of these and make a creation or two, send me an emailed photo and i will put your piece on my blog! :)
