My best friend's birthday is coming up soon and I really wanted to make her something special.  She's very trendy and into the best of the best when it comes to brand names.  Unfortunately, I just can't afford the type of jewelry she loves most, so I had to work with what was in my stash.  I do think she'll love it, though.

If anyone wants a tutorial, please let me know!

She likes pink and snack food, so I played off that.



I had this old gift box in a junk drawer, so I thought I'd reuse it to fancy it up a bit.



After I wrapped it, I realized I didn't seal it with anything. Undecided  I hope it retains it's beautiful color.

So simple, yet so beautiful! I'll bet when she receives that box, she thinks there's just some plain ole Tiffany jewelry inside. Won't she be surprised to see this thoughtful handmade creation.  Smiley

Thank you!  Yes, certainly!  I'll write one this evening.  I was thinking of making matching earrings.
