Lookie! Lookie! I said a few posts ago that I had always been interested in making jewelry so I got some books out of the library. I went to a bead store today. I’ve never really been into beaded stuff but I thought that maybe I could find some cool stuff. I’m also interested in making a mala.

The store was sort of overwhelming because I don’t really know what I’m doing. I’m also always uncomfortable in small stores where it is just me and the person working. I found some beads I liked and I decided to make earrings. I found the ear wires and knew I needed head pins to connect them together but wasn’t sure how to go about doing that. So I asked. That’s a big deal for me. I don’t like talking to people.

The lady explained to me exactly how to do it. I was figuring out where to get the pilers I needed when she said, “You can make them here if you want.” Yippee! They have a little work station that you can use. She made the first one for me and then I made the second. It was easy. I knew I would get hooked if I started doing this. I’m all giddy.


At checkout she asked if I would like to sign up for their frequent buyer card. I figured that I better since I think I’m addicted now.
