I think it looks like a fun hobby and a neat way to spiffy up a wardrobe. Anybody?

I make bracelets. I have a huge supply of beads and such, but I'm not too good at it and they eventually break. I have a box full of broken ones that need to be restrung. I've also made a few necklaces and earrings for DD (I don't like necklaces so much on me and I don't wear earrings).

I'm thinking memory wire would make amazing bracelets. Have you done that?

I haven't used memory wire, but I've done silk, ribbons, jute, nylon and that stretchy stuff. Most of the things that I've made that I like are the ones made with natural beads--pearls and rock chips.

I've also made some really cute bookmarks with beads at each end.

So many possibilities!
There's a multi-strand pearl necklace in a book I got from the library. Beautiful! Rice pearls and other odd shapes!

I've gathered up a bunch of stuff and as soon as I do one or two other things around the house ... I'm going to fiddle a bit.

Tell us more Molly ... wanna post a picture or two?
I went for a little scoot around town this afternoon and saw some nice things that someone is selling on consignment.

Because you had a bad day
You're taking one down
You sing a sad song just to turn it around
You say you don't know
You tell me don't lie
You work at a smile and you go for a ride
You had a bad day
The camera don't lie
You're coming back down and you really don't mind
You had a bad day
You had a bad day

I'm not sure I've ever been serenaded for being a klutz before.
Couldn't do anything with the beer cap but the guitar strings have possiblities.
