I have mentioned before that I am a member of the Austin Craft Riot team. I love it so much. I have learned a lot in the short time that I have been a member. With all of the amazing talent and experience on that team I have some great people to learn from.
One of the team members, Manue from CraZeeCrafteeZ, makes some really amazing jewelry. She recently came out with a series of birthstone necklaces made from her paper beads. This is one of the most creative things I have seen in a very long time! I love it!
Each birthstone has a specially designed bead to represent it.
You can even have a birthstone necklace made with your birthstone and a smaller bead for your child!
These would make a perfect gift for the holidays. I have a feeling I will be purchasing a couple for family members when I start my Christmas shopping.
Be sure to check out the listing on Etsy and the rest of her beautiful shop. If you live in Austin you can find her work around town at some really great shops. A list of the stores she sells at is on her Facebook page.
