I love a good jewelry party, but I don't really love all the Made-in-China and possibly lead tainted, hopefully not slave labor, and cost more than I should be spending parts of it.
Fortunately, I have a brilliant mother who came up with an idea. A Beading Party.
What you need-
a group of friends
all your and their broken beaded necklaces
some cord/wire/whatever you want to string something new
