Last week my mom and I took a great jewelry design course at Beaded Lily, taught by my friend Lily. It was so much fun! We both made gorgeous necklaces featuring beads made in Italy, many by Lily's husband Tim in their shop. It was definitely a learning experience to see what actually goes in to crafting a piece of jewelry from scratch.
My mom is so excited to show off her handmade souvenir, and I have to admit that I have loved wearing my creation around town. In fact, I've already warned Rob that I may be taking up a new hobby.
If you are looking for something fun to do while in town, I highly suggest a class at Beaded Lily.
