Gettin' Made: and Makin' Magic
Mama's Magic Studio is the work of stay-at-home mom Jen Johnson from up north in San Jose. When she's not chasing after the little ones, she's crafting up a storm for her Etsy shop.

The birds nest pendants Jen makes are so intricate--those are freshwater pearls posing as eggs. Be sure to check out the Mama's Magic Studio website for more color options.

This one goes out to previous Gettin' Made featured crafter Shari Bonnin, who had recently twittered about getting home one night to discover that she had been wearing two drastically different earrings all day.
