Jewelry - obsession number 1,943,262 for Shelley

Why can't I do a project and be like "no I hate doing this and I will never do it again!!" ?
Since I made the bracelet at ME a few weeks ago, I just want to keep cranking them out.  I bought a few from Kaari while we were there and have put one together.  I hinted to Ryan that they had a monthly club at French General where they would send me three new pieces to make a month.  Being the sweetheart he is, he got me  a gift card to do just that for mother's day! 
It is so fun!  Holly and I have made plans to spend some of our summer with kids playing and us making some baubles!!!
It was a little intimidating at this point.  I was nervous I was going to break one of the glass beads.
But it all worked out......


  1. I'm dying to make one of these!! I just love them. They're so cute!!

  2. It's gorgeous, Shelley! I was just checking out the previous months on the French General website the other day. Loverly!

  3. Yum girl. You are so good for the economy too! Looking forward to seeing both you girls myself!

  4. Shelley! It is so cute! I am loving that bracelet, I finally finished my necklace.

  5. Oh which necklace?!?!!? I want to see!!!

  6. Love the wonderful colors Shelley! You did a great job! Keep up the good work.

  7. hey cutie,

    aaahh i love Kaaris kits.
    they are so fabulous.
    this one is adorable!!
    im sure me was amazing.

  8. That is gorgeous! I am looking at your picture and think I might recognize you from Silver that possible? I took two Kaari classes there and loved them. She is going to be near here next week and I am still hoping I can take the time to take her class.

    "We" are mother/daughter team from Minnesota. We are only a couple months old and would love to have you come and visit our new blog.

    We really aren't all about our jewelry, though we are busy with jewelry for a fair right now. Mostly about our life and loves!


  9. Shelley, that is a beautiful bracelet!!! Whatever you happen to be working on, you always do such a beautiful job.

  10. Hey Moulin Rouge!!!!
    Girl, I just caught up with you and I have to you EVER slow down?
    Kaari is awesome...I just love her to pieces! Her kits are fantastic and so are her classes.
    I thought I warned you ahead of time that her kits would be addicting as well...hahaha!!!!
    Miss you!

  11. It is sooooo addictive!! Love it!

  12. Shelly, I took a class from Karri a couple of months ago & I know what you mean about being a bit overwhelmed with all the pieces! But, your bracelet turned out GREAT! Enjoy wearing it! Charlene
