Jewelry? Um...Well...

No one needs to worry that I'll become competition for them, but yes, I did decide to try to make myself some bracelets. And for those strands pre-made and all I have to do is add a jump ring or two and a closure? I can handle it. But when it comes to stringing beads (ok, I'm still fine there) and using a crimp bead to close it (on stretchy cord)? FUGEDABOUDIT! I have no coordination to use the tools to crimp it closed over those ends...maybe a bunch of practice, or perhaps different crimp beads?

But hey! I've got three new bracelets for an evening's worth of work.

And I think The Tonk will probably injest a teensy tiny silver bead (unless it truly did slip under the bookcase of fabrics) before I find it. I guess those trays with the fuzzy lining are worth the price?

wink!

Looking good! I personally rarely wear bracelets due to work contamination issues, but I can appreciate them from a distance, right?

Ooh, beautiful! I am very impressed - jewelry-making isn't something I've had the guts to try.

Namaste

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
