I don't know about you, but I simply adore children's art and by extension, the jewelry designs youngsters come up with. They teach adults many things - they are not afraid to try or make mistakes nor do they hesitate. They just do it.

Shown here is the wonderful color graduated necklace by Katherine, age 11. According to her mother, Katherine is artistically inclined. She certainly knew what she wanted to do and accomplished it quickly. Don't you just love the way she used different colors of blues and different shapes of beads?

Here is the final design modeled by Katherine :

Debbie (my friend and co-instructor) suggested a memory wire bracelet would be ideal for Katherine's younger sister, Emma who is 7 years old. Young as she was, Emma knew what she liked - silver foiled beads and hemalyke (reconstituted hematite) focals in the shape of a key and a cross. When asked if the key was the one to her heart, Emma just giggled!
