I have always loved to draw and paint but I didn't really throw myself into it until after I had my first son.  I wanted to be a stay at home mom and at the same time be able to decorate the new home we had just purchased. I taught myself how to use power tools and began to build furniture which I would paint and sometimes sell.  What was once a hobby became a new part-time career which I feel so blessed to be able to do.
Create a personalized gift for a friend or coworker. Martha Stewart Crafts® jewelry makes gift giving easier than ever.

Snip excess pin using the small flush cutter. Note: think about whether you want to highlight one or both initials when creating the initial/bead charms. 3. Attach the key charm and the initial/bead charm(s) to the necklace using a jump ring. 4. Using a jump ring, attach the lobster clasp to one end of the necklace and clasp an open link on the other end of the necklace. Tip: Easily mix it up and add color to the gold charms and chain.
