Who doesn’t like a little shimmer and versatility when it comes to a statement piece? This is why, when we started thinking about our next DIY project, we couldn’t resist using our new Bold Beauty fabric with shimmery gold accents to create an awesome necklace. It’s designed with magnetic clasps, so you can change the fabric according to your mood.

It’s also easy to make! All you need is ¼ yard of fabric (or remnants left over from another project) and a just a few supplies listed below. You can find our fabric at a Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft store.

• waxed cording

How doing good in the world also does the heart good

Giving back is such a beautiful reminder of what truly matters in life. Here at Kathy Davis Studios, we support several charities throughout the year through volunteer workdays and outreach. From organizations committed to ending hunger to those that spread joy to children in need through art, we give back in so many different ways.

As Joanna, one member of our KDS team put it, we work day in and day out designing cards and products that bring joy to others. “But going out into the world ourselves, sharing our helpful hands, our hearts and our smiles is just such a raw, real feeling of sharing joy. When you can see firsthand that you’ve made somebody’s day or simply made someone smile, it’s living proof that doing good equals feeling good and we need more of that in the world.”

To inspire you to go out and make a difference in the communities where you live, above are a few of our favorite moments of doing good over the years.

Share some joy today with the perfect, heartfelt gift.
