New jewelry for me :)

bead jewelry

Ok, time for a little story.

Let's go back to about 3 months ago.  We were moving to a new apartment and I packed all my stuff from the bathroom in a few boxes.  One such box contained all of my makeup, jewelry, spare contacts, and other random toiletries.  This particular box was stacked in the back of my in-law's truck- not tied down.  I was about to leave and saw the box and asked the packers of the truck to make sure to tie it down.

Apparently, that did not happen.  Can you see where this is going?  Yep, sure enough, the truck rounded a corner on a busy street and the box fell out.  The driver didn't see it, but another nice driver did and stopped him.  But, alas, by the time they got back to the place where the box had fallen out, it was gone!!!  In a matter of 2 minutes someone had stolen it! The nerve!  You would think if the box was in the way that someone would just move it to the curb or something, but no.  They took it!  Who takes random boxes of people's stuff anyway? 

It was a sad moving day for me.  After getting most things moved in that day, I made a late night trip to walmart to restock the essentials.  But, I've only started on replacing my jewelry.  Replacing all that stuff is expensive!
A few weeks ago, I buckled down and made myself some new bead jewelry.   I had these beads stashed away since I was 12 or 13.  I was really into making bead jewelry then.  I guess I'm going through some kind of childhood revival- haha!


 Even though I'm not much of a jewelry wearer, but it's nice to have something pretty to wear once in a while :)

 P.S. I'm getting ready to set up my Etsy Shop!  I just have to figure out how to price everything.  Wish me luck!

  1. Bummer about your box of stuff? Maybe someone didn't think you'd ever be able to find it again and thought they'd be a good Samaritan by throwing it away for you? Who knows? Anyway, your new necklaces are cute. I bought some beads for some bracelets last year. They were expensive and then the elastic I used got stretched out and I can't wear them anymore. It would have just been cheaper to buy some I think. I hope you have better luck!
