I work with beads when I’m not writing.

     A while back, I began to make my own necklaces because I fell in love with those lovely chunky ones I kept seeing but couldn’t afford to buy.  Whenever I saw an interesting necklace on TV, (Bones wears some great ones by the way) I would think of how I could make something similar.  

     It got so that people I knew were asking me where I bought mine.  When I told them that I made my own, they began to ask if I d sell some.  I hadn’t thought of that, but soon I was making and selling a few necklaces.  I didn’t make any money at it but I did enjoy having something to do with my hands when I wasn’t writing. 

     Dear Hubby has no manual dexterity left due to his MS.  However, he did help me invent a combination ID tag holder/necklace.  At my last writers conference I ran out of them the first day.  Now if only my books sell as well…. 

     Recently an extraordinary friend sent me two hefty boxes full of beads of all types and sizes along with some tools I didn’t have.  What a marvelous treasure they are.  I know she reads this, so here’s another thank you, Elena.  An additional thank you goes to another wonderful friend.  She owns the shop on my blogroll, and she has permitted me to put some of my necklaces and earrings in her store.
