I have come to the realization that I have crafting ADHD. This blog is like a box of chocolates! You never know which craft you’re going to get next :P….don’t think too hard on it, it makes sense I promise. I’ve ordered stuff from ol’ truthful Amazon, so the actual earring making will be on hold for just a bit. I’ve kind of done some overhauling and have decided that I’m going to do everything with sterling silver. I wore the earrings with the findings (another new word I’ve learned recently!) I bought at Joann Fabrics, and my ears are in serious pain. So I’ve made quite a few sterling silver purchases on Amazon, and it’s just a waiting game….have I mentioned that I am not a patient person?....cause I’m really not. But, I think if I’m going to make earrings and spend money on awesome beads, then I want to do it right and hopefully the earrings will have a long lifetime and not hurt my ears (or someone elses if I get into selling earrings ;) ).
But I have gone bead crazy! Crazy I tell you! There’s a small bead shop in my town that a friend told me about, and it is AWESOME!! Wall to wall of beads from all over the world, and you can purchase as few as just 1 bead, you don’t have to buy an entire string of beads at outrageous prices. One bead can cost you anywhere from $0.03 and up. Joann’s watch out (though the bead place was here before Joann’s, so perhaps the bead shop should watch out….this is a chicken and egg ordeal)! Check out all of the beautiful beads I wrangled up:
I cannot wait to make some beautiful earrings with all of these. I have so many ideas floating around in my head that I want to try out. We’ll see how it goes. Stay posted for finished results! (Hurry up Amazon!...)
