Rats! Took a bad fall yesterday and broke my left wrist. So much for my jewelry making for a while. Thank heaven I'm right handed. Won't even be able to get it set until Monday. Our wonderful son, Mike came over and took me grocery shopping. Picked up extras of all the heavy and hard to handle items while I had the help. Now for the next couple of weeks it'll just be the small stuff. The biggest problem will be boredom since just about every thing I do takes two hands. By the time this is over I should be quite good at typing, opening bottles, making beds, etc., etc. with one hand..
I learned something about making jewelry while in grade school. Our school had summer activities that took place on the school grounds. It wasn't until after several years of marriage, and our children were grown that I began creating jewelry in earnest. In 1991 while my husband was in the hospital for a short time he bought me a beaded War Bonnet to hang from my truck rear view mirror. He made the mistake of saying "I bet you could do this". What a Pandora's Box he opened! I began creating these and some Native American Style jewelry, accessories and wall hangings. Sold most of these items as well. I was hooked and the rest is history.
