I finally got settled in since moving in with Mom. She gave me two rooms - one for my bedroom and one for a craft studio! I am feeling spoiled with a whole room dedicated to crafting. I am calling it my Playroom.
A couple of days ago, I finished unpacking and organizing my beads. I started with this pile of bags of beads:

I needed something simple and quick to make and I have this lovely Tree of Life pendant that my sister made for me. I've been wanting to wear it soooo...I made this necklace.
