I sat down this morning to post the picture of the next Make and Take project and realized this would be my 15th post this year. That was the same number of posts I had last year total. So... progress!

Make and Take this month is Monday, March 21st from 6 to 9 p.m. The project for this month is charmed ball-chain necklaces. We will be making a photo charm using either flattened bottled caps (as pictured) or a 1x1 memory frame. Add some beads, metal word tags, and any other found objects such as keys, old hardware, buttons, old earrrings or jewelry parts and you have an eclectic necklace which matches your personality. Use your own photos printed very small, or assorted vintage images from here at the shop. Make additional charms from paper tags (as pictured) or beads. Materials fee: $10. Hope to see you there.


  1. What a great idea! Your particular design is lovely and I know people will really enjoy this.

  2. Thanks. We do have a lot of fun at Make and Take. I love trying different things in mixed media and it gives me a chance to play with purpose.

  3. Agreed, we do have fun being creative. Diane had so many choices at the latest Make and Take, it took me a while to figure out which treasures to add to my necklace. Thanks Diane. Sincerely Heather
