Well hello all. I’m not sure how to start this out. I’m not the eloquent writer my sisters are. However, I am brilliant at saving a penny or two on things I like. For years I bought necklaces at a store that would sell their old necklaces ten for five dollars. I would easily get tired of them and give them away, but that was fine because they didn’t cost much. Well one day I had brilliant idea. I would take them apart (those that I could), save the beads and make new, cooler necklaces!! So that’s what I did. If I had planned better I would have taken pictures of the old necklaces and my refurbished necklaces, but I didn’t. So to start I went and found a box (an old jewelry box) to hold the beads. I went and bought some wire. I found necklace making books at my local library (it took me a couple of tries to get the right books). Then I went to work. One of the books showed how to string beads to make cool patterns. Other books just gave me ideas. I had a lot of fun and learned a lot! I felt really good about my dexterity and mental acuity. This made me want to do it more and more! So now I have another hobby that I have no time to pursue! Please enjoy these picture which show the fruits of my labors.
Thanks for stopping by!
