Ok, friends, this is the first post in a little series I’m doing in the next couple of weeks on some simple handmade gifts you can make.

These are gifts I made last Christmas. And they’re mostly for women. Sorry, guys. I’m not very good at making handmade stuff for men. It doesn’t come as naturally for me.

Anyhow. This is a necklace I made for my sister. I think it turned out pretty well, but I had some frustrations making it, so hopefully you can learn from my mistakes!

Let’s break it down.
