I used to be a "beader."
I made lovely necklaces and earrings.
I even made my own beads out of clay.
That must have been a million years ago . . .

My very good friend Nancy wanted an eyeglass chain for Christmas.
She has lost two or three pairs of very expensive reading glasses
and has now decided eyeglass chains aren't so bad.
Please . . . we are of a "certain" age now.
So I made her two. One is a mermaidy green beach glass look . . .
And one in a bright colorful, I can find these look.
I swear they have made the holes in those beads smaller since I tried to make
something with beads!
Really, I could barely see the holes, it was more like intuition to get them on the wire.
I also "made" this . . .

My other great friend, Anne, gave me this crystal last night.

It has very amazing energies. Hey, I could use some amazing energies!
Especially this week.

I was given explicit instructions to wrap wire around it and hang it from my neck.
This only took three tries to get the right amount of wire
so you could still see the crystal and it won't take a nose dive from the chain.

I think this is going to be my new favorite luck charm.

Do you have something that brings you luck that you love to wear???


  1. That crystal is lovely! Don't have any good luck charms...but lately every time I go to choose a piece of jewelry, I want something that was given to me by a loved one, especially the hubster.

  2. My special jewelry is my grandma's charm bracelet. It has been divided between family members and handed down through the generations, twice now. I feel a connection to the oracles of the past when I wear it, and the sound reminds me of my grandma.
    I hope you have a nice holiday with your family. Merry Christmas!
