A New Use for Yarn Poms

Introducing Lace and Yarn’s newest endeavor, jewelry making!

A new project!  I haven’t made jewelry since I was a teenager, but man, was it great back then!  Especially in my preteen days where my friends and I would take string everywhere to make bracelets and necklaces.  Remember those friendship bracelets that were so cool in the 90s?  Okay, maybe it was just dorky little me, but I loved it!  Everyone got a friendship bracelet from me.  Well, grown up me has outgrown friendship bracelets, and has moved onto prettier things.
