I recently got invited to a Jewelry Party.
I love jewelry, but I’ve never been much of a jewelry wearer. My slim list of preferred jewelry includes yellow gold, a wedding band set, earrings from cherished children, leather, and orange and blue beaded or enameled items I wear during football season. And yet, when I went through my stuff lately, I found that I have a ton of jewelry, and I like most of it, I remember when I got it, I have fond feelings for it, but I still don’t wear it. And some of it is broken.
Lately, I’ve wanted to create jewelry. I’ve got a few friends whose desire to make jewelry has really bloomed since I’ve known them. So I’m taking a leaf from their books of accomplishment and doing a little bit of jewelry.You can buy all sorts of jewelry findings at JoAnn’s, Michael’s, and local bead shops like our nearby Gifts of Avalon, and they’re reasonably priced.
As a Remnant Redo, I decided to fix some of my broken jewelry. It wasn’t hard to do. You just need a few basic tools.Tons of how-to videos abound on You-Tube in which even the most simpering of young girly-girls know more about making jewelry than I do. Watch some of them and your brow will no longer furrow when you hear or read the word “crimp.” Hmmm, wonder what could be done with this junk, er, these possible jewelry findings?
