Just because friends can, doesn't mean that I can!
I don't know what makes me think I can do everything that my friends can do. I have learned a costly lesson. I must admit that I did't want my great friends to out do me so...I decided that I too could make jewelry. Lisa & Les make the most beautiful jewelry, love their work. So I got busy and oh my gosh...what a mistake that was! I went to the local Hobby Lobby & bought many beads, tools etc. that cost a small fortune! I came home & thought ok, I will make a necklace. Well I started one & it looked awful. So next I decided ok, I will make a bracelet. Well...the glass beads were way too big for the small chain bracelet & looked like huge rocks connected to a chain! So I went back to Hobby Lobby and spent more $$$ to buy more beads & another chain bracelet. I finally got this one to look good, but what a pain in the behind! I most likely will not make any more jewelry! I am way to anal for this! It just about drove me crazy! This is very detailed & too time consuming for me. But I do have a greater respect for those that do make beautiful jewelry. I did list this bracelet on my etsy site if anyone is interested. I think from now on I will stick to my altered art, collage, blocks, etc.....This project really wore me out! Ha! Hope everyone is having a great week. Hugs to you all ***Renea
