While my high school riding buddy was visiting me last week, she asked me to make some earrings to match some of her jewelry. In that sitting, I made three sets of earrings for her, a pair of earrings for another friend’s birthday, and a pair to offer for sale today on my website.
I recently took a shopping trip to Salt Lake City (4 hours from here by car) and couldn’t miss stopping at Michael’s craft store. There I found the unique faceted Millefiori beads used on the earrings shown in the picture at left. The bead strand I bought has several different color beads, so watch for more earrings like these to be made soon.
I also bought a black Kathy Van Leeland purse that was surprisingly understated (for her) in its amount of bling. I picked up some black and transparent rainbow faceted beads at Michael’s that day that I made into some additional bling for my new purse. I must have my bling! I’ve never before seen beads like these with an iridescent rainbow stripe around their middle.
What do you think? Have I come up with a potential new product? What should I call it? A Purse Dangle? A Blingy Thingy?
