My first crafty love is jewelry. It has been a long time since I have made in. Sometimes when you love something you have to set it free and then see if it comes back to you, blah blah blah. Whatever the reason I just had jewelry burnout. Lately I have been getting the itch to whip up some wearable magic. Enter wooden beads and my new favorite craft supply - Puffy Paint Writers.

What design you paint on your beads is totally up to you. I love neons and neutrals so I decided to go that route. You can never go wrong with polka dots as a design.
Paint your beads on a skewer or stick of some sort. Stick the pen or paintbrush into foam to allow the paint to dry.
Using your new beads layout some possible design options and get busy.
I love the way the jewelry came out. I feel inspired to polkadot more beads and make even more jewelry!
Feeling inspired? What are you going to add polka dots too?
