Anyone Feeling Artsy?
At least it wasn't as bad as last time....when I found a trail of jewelry running down our front sidewalk because someone had filled their pockets with sparkly things- but not pushed them far enough to stay. Reality is that I don't have many pretty things anymore - but the ones I do have hold special meaning in my life. My mothers pearls, my grandmothers beads, a ring my great grandmother gave me, my ten diamond necklace....you get the idea. Not super valuable but emotionally precious.
Yesterday I bought a safe for my jewelry. It was long past time and is a necessary action if I want to retain any of my special things. Inside it I have a ziploc full of these pretty (and rather chunky) amber beads that I would love to wear again - but I think it's time to do something more than simply restring them...something more artistic. Do you have any good ideas? Or a desire to rescue them from the depths of my safe where they are likely to stay for too long - to rebirth them as something beautiful.....and therefore sparing them exile for a second time at the bottom of my 'need to do' list.
