Day Three: Saving it for Later
My little collection of charms and fancy beads is slowly growing… I try not to buy them because I know I won’t use them immediately, but if I see something cute and really unique… well…
I have always been interested in making jewelry. I used to make necklaces as a little girl with plastic beads all the time! I would make them and give them to my friends and family members. As I got older, my grandma showed me her bead collection. She worked with tinier beads and made more sophisticated-looking jewelry. She also worked with wire, and could twist it and shape it beautifully.
She tried to teach me, but for some reason, I just didn’t get it. I can put beads on a string, even tiny ones, but I can’t use pliers for the life of me. Opening and closing small rings with pliers? Forget about it.
Eventually, I just gave up. But not entirely, because I still have my beads, charms, clasps, etc. One day, I’ll sit down and really try to learn how to use pliers like a normal person. One day. 😊
