Spring Break Day 1- Lazy Girl's Guide To Jewelry Making

I'm officially on spring break and i wish i could be playing on the sandy beaches of a beautiful tropical island like Barbados. Or strolling thru the streets of Paris, exploring the foods and then hunting for treasures at some famous street markets. Or maybe exploring the italian countryside by visiting a charming italian village that steals my heart from the moment of my arrival. Or even returning home to my native country of Nigeria for a very, very,very short visit by our standards since i only have a week off for spring break ( its usually upwards of 3wks of stay when returning home after being away for a long period of time).
Instead, i will be at home. Since I have not been gifted with the opportunity to do any of the afore mentioned things, i will spend my spring break, catching up on lost sleep, side projects and exploring Georgia.
No outfit pic today, because i plan on studying all day. In my pajamas...not much excitement and definitely not picture worthy. So instead, i'm sharing a project i did this morning. It should be included in the Lazy Girl's Guide To Jewelry Making Because it takes all of 2 minutes to make.



For those interested:
Materials:
*Glasses cords/string (i got mine @ cvs, but i think they can be found at all corner drugstores next to the glasses)
*Thick Chain Link (its actually a purse handle and i got it a craft supply store ie: Michaels, Joanna, etc)
Procedure:
Step 1: Attach one end of the link to one end of your cord.
Step 2: Repeat step one to the remaining unattached ends of link and cord.
And boom!!!

Pics are all me!!!

The necklace looks great. Enjoy your break. How about joining our skirt challenge? I have five takers so far!

Do you wear the jewelries you make or they are just for fun? I have been trying to learn how to create one of those. Went to Michaels but came out empty handed

Try and do something for the spring break....'cos you know one professor is going to ask you what you did for spring break

I would recommend some place in ATL, but uhhh...i havent found any spot
