Wordful Wednesday - Beading

I've mentioned a couple of times that my 12 yr old son has taken up an unusual hobby (unusual for a tween boy anyway). With help from my mother, he has taken a liking to creating beaded jewelry. I'm glad that he's found a creative outlet and it gives us quality time to do something together.

Saturday evening my mother came over with her beads. It was an evening of me, her, Logan, and my nephew making beaded jewelry.

Logan takes beading seriously. He is meticulous about patterns and overall appeal. So far he's made five necklaces, all of them quite pretty.

My nephew, Ozzy, didn't have a bead board available so he used a pizza plate to create a beaded ornament.

The necklace on the left was made by me and the necklace on the right was made by Logan. I am thinking about giving them away during an upcoming blog event. Honestly, what do you think?

I think it's wonderful that your son has picked up something creative. Both necklaces are very nice.

Oh wow, I honestly think that's SO incredibly amazing-More men should be able to craft like that! It's not only beneficial to woman :)

I agree with Noelle-You both have a great eye for making jewelry {this coming from a jewelry maker herself!}.

As for giving away, I think that's up to you and Logan!
