jewelry gifts

I’m not a huge fan of making my own jewelry, but I do it because I love beads and because I can, if needed.  I have found that I am easily frustrated with small objects and using my fine motor skills.  Plus, my eyes just aren’t the same as they used to be. *Sigh*. So, once or twice every other month, I pull out my bead collection and try to make something, usually a gift. I have beads from 4 years ago that still are waiting to be used.

I do like to make simple beaded earrings for friends and myself to wear at work. Often I am told, “You should sell these”. I think to myself, “Man, if I had a dollar for every time I was told that, I’d be a millionaire already!”  But, it doesn’t really work like that does it?  All you crafty/artsy folk know about that, don’t you?

Yesterday started the birthday season for my friends and family. At least 9 birthday in the next 30 days that I can think of. That means gift making and quickly getting behind on Halloween crafts/costumes and Holiday gift lists.  Well, I shall do the best I can and thank goodness for Etsy and other awesome jewelry shops, because I’ll be visiting often for gifts.
