I never say this but found it on the WEB :)
I will be at a yard sale today and possibly tomorrow if we do not find wonderful homes for all these lovely, used items.
I will bring my jewelry to see if there maybe any interest in the crowd today..I love beading but people are so different you just never know what will make them say “I have to have that!”.
I try to remind myself that what I make is pretty and unique but in the back of my head if they do not purchase something, I really am thinking I will make something better next time. Why do we do that? I know the economy is bad and the last thing people think of is a new piece of bling when they are loosing their homes to their banks. I must go easy on myself and not fall into the trap of just giving them away. My bracelets take 4 to 8 hrs depending on the stich I use. I use tiny seed beads, most people can not even see the holes in them.
I do Herringbone,Tubular Peyote,Flat Peyote, Even Count as well as Odd Count. I make Eyeglass lanyards in either Sprial Stich or my favorite Kumihimo. This one I do has 8 bobbins I fill with cords pre-loaded with beautiful beads. Then you get into a rythem and before your eyes this beautiful cord starts to appear. I sell these too and make them with pretty glass beads but the time and cost of supplies plus something for my time always seems to be too much for those who check them out. I will work on a piece at yard sale so they can watch and see what actually goes into each piece I make. This will keep me from eatting fried dough too!
Hope you all have a wonderful day out there in your world !
I will post photos tonight, no time now. Just about 6AM I better get ready!
