Beaded Necklace

I think I have said this before, but I am a little bit of an eclectic crafter.  I sew a bit, stamp some, make cards and scrapbook pages, paint things, I have tried quilting...and my newest crafty thing is jewelry making.  I really started back in November, but I am pretty sure I haven't shared any of the jewelry I have made here on my blog yet.  My favorite is a red and cream necklace...the first piece I ever made, but I will have to show that one in a different post.  Today I am going to show you just a simple necklace that I made this week.
My mom gave me the medallion (is that the right word?) for this.  Isn't it cute?! It is a little bit larger than I am used to so I wanted just a simple chain to go with it.  I used brown seed beads and strung them on jewelry wire.  At the top is the clasp and a crimp bead on each side to keep the beads from falling off.
Simple and inexpensive!

Music Review--Robert Pierre

   If you know me, you probably know that I am a big fan of Christian music.  I am always interested in finding new Christian artists/bands so I was very excited for the recent opportunity to listen to 4 new songs from singer and songwriter, Robert Pierre.  Robert is an 18 year old senior in high school...he is actually graduating this week! 
   After listening to these songs many times over I would say I give them 2 thumbs up.  I really like the peppy beats of his music.  This would be great music to listen to in the car in traffic because it would make me smile and keep me awake :).   I also really like the message in these songs.  They aren't shallow, they have a deepness to them that I am shocked comes from a high schooler!  In one song it says, "Any desperate day, one word I can pray, all I know to say JESUS.  Screaming from my soul, I am giving up control, the only hope I know JESUS"  Love that.
   This 4 song sneak peak isn't just for me though, you can listen too!  Click on this link  When you get there click the Robert Pierre EP image to open the
online player.  If you like the songs you can actually download them onto your computer or ipod for free by entering your e-mail address and zip code.  I was going to share which on is my favorite, but I can't decide between "Jesus" and "Identity."  So go check them out and tell me which one you like better. :)
   And if you are interested in seeing what Robert is like in real life check out his facebook page or this rad video of him and his friends doing trick basketball shots (I just have to say that I want a backyard like that!)

I did not get compensated for this review.  I got the same opportunity as my readers to listen to and download 4 songs.  All opinions are my own.
