Craft Bloggers Unite and Happy Valentines Day!

Blogged under Around the Web by Tammy on Saturday 14 February 2009 at 11:29 am

Since today is Valentine’s Day, I thought it appropriate to show off one of my most recent Valentine’s inspired jewelry pieces before I introduce my weekly crafting links.

This is my Harlequin Wire, Onyx, Mother of Pearl, and Crystal Necklace, which I posted both on Etsy for sale as well as the tutorial for those interested in making one on my About.com Jewelry Making site. Okay, now onto the crafty links!
