Beautiful spring is already here, and it is time to update your wardrobe, not only clothing, but also jewelry. Well, shop-bought jewelry may be costly. If you are in a tight budget, creating your own jewelry at home would be nice choice. Here is a great jewelry making project for this spring. You can choose sky blue lampwork glass beads to make a bracelet that reflects your personality and suits this season.
