Growing so fast and a new bracelet

The Girl is 8 months old today! What a milestone. We celebrated by not sleeping at all last night and not taking our naps today. Who needs sleep when there is so much exploring to do?! She is getting so big, I can see she wants to walk so bad and is going to give me a heart attack because she keeps standing up and letting go. I have no idea why they make baby toys, we have hundreds of dollars worth of stuff and my little one wants to play with my makeup, chair legs, water bottles and the poor chihuahua.

Handmade Underground Jewelry: 25 Fun Projects For All Occasions, Shannon Levart, 0470504366

I have a passion for new books especially jewelry books and art books. I just bought this one to add to my collection.
Handmade Underground Jewelry - 25 fun projects for all occasions by Shannon LeVart. 
I love the cover that is what drew me in, I thought it was funny that we had the same name, but I had to add it to my collection because I love Shannon's style. I have seen her work in Belle Armoire magazine (another one of my splurges) and on her blog

So how cute is this little ring? I am drawn to all things with wings right now, so this little beauty is what caught my eye in Shannon's book. Can't wait to try one out for myself. So Cute!

This is my new bracelet, lots of wire wrapping which I am finding I love. I decided to try out some Vintaj brass that I bought over a year ago on a whim (not normally my style) and has sat in my room ever since. So here is my Vintaj chain bracelet with Swarovski Crystals, Swarovski Crystal Pearls, Ruby Zoisite stones and glass rondelles, finished with a lobster clap clasp and extender chain. I think it came out nice I know I have outfits it would go with nicely. 

I love how this picture turned out so I just had to share. 
Off to bead, I mean bed, okay maybe beading then bed or beading in bed. Hmmm...there's an idea. I wish I didn't need sleep I would get so much more done.

You made me laugh at the beginning of this post "We celebrated by not sleeping at all last night and not taking our naps today." Good Lord, you must be exhausted! She has that spark of determination in her eye!

I'm so glad you like the book, there are some good solid techniques to branch off from in there.
Thank you for the mention!
