Accessories are my thing…


The other day in Express I spotted a necklace I just had to have!! At $50 it would be splurge for a piece I would only wear on occasion. So I refrained, but thought...maybe I could DIY it?

While at the craft store I bought some beads knowing I could return them if things… didn’t work out so well for me in jewelry making. I spent $10 on beads $4 on findings (the things that connect the beads) and $ .70 on string to connect the necklace. I used needle nose pliers I had at home to construct the piece…… and after one snowed-in afternoon I had my necklace…and $35 to put towards another project!

Of course I am already thinking of where to put that savings..... I found some wedges online at DSW with some fabulous bead work on the top strap.
At $80/pair... I wonder if I could re-create this look with some inexpensive wedges and beads???

    I think everything typed made a great deal of sense.
    However, consider this, suppose you added a little content?
    I am not saying your content isn't good., however what if you added something that makes people desire more?
    I mean "Accessories are my thing..." is a little boring.
    You might look at Yahoo's front page and note how they create
    article headlines to get people to open the links.
    You might try adding a video or a pic or two to grab people interested about what you've written.

    In my opinion, it would make your posts a little livelier.
