Note: I found this post unpublished from 5 years ago. I was going to take photos of the bracelets I made using these beautiful beads. Now, five whole years later, I think I don't have enough of any of these spectacular beads left to make an entire bracelet. lol.
I have perfectly justified my resale shopping habit. Thank you Universe.
This story is still true today.
The continuous hunt for material to make more bracelets is one I totally enjoy! The hunt demands that I visit numerous resale shops on a regular basis, scouring the shelves for dreadful old jewelry made with beautiful stones and beads. I feel I'm doing a great service each time I liberate forgotten lavender jade or tourmaline or hand blown pink glass beads and give the stones new life, a new purpose and some day, a new forever home, on the wrist of someone who is thrilled to find just the right bracelet!
Wrap your wrists with Love!
I've completely given into my lifelong love of beads, stones, making stuff and stories, not particularly in that order.
