I learned something when I was raising my twins. I was the kind of mother that bough 2 sets of everything to dress them exactly the same. I also cut their hair and put it together exactly the same.
At one point before they became teens, they decided that they wanted to have their own individual things not exactly like the other sister. At that point, I woke up to realize that they needed to grow up as 2 different independent individuals, even though they looked exactly the same.
So now with that history in mind, I made her birthday set totally different from her sister Suzy, however, I used one set of the same beads to keep them always connected no matter where they are or how different these two souls are, smile.
I simply adore my identical twin daughters. So, I decided to make them bracelet-earring sets for their recent birthday. Love them!
Suzy is somewhat a fashionista just like her sister. Her level of organization of her jewelry pieces is off the hook, something that anyone would be supper happy to have it at home, (like me, smile.)
(Oh, are you are asking where is my other twin jewelry set? Answer: Next Monday friends, smile.)
I found these interesting beads the other day at the beads store. They are not only interesting in the design the artist chose, but also, in the color combination that he/she used. So, I decided to purchase them, pick some small red beads I had at home and get busy crafting.
No, these beads are not red, they are bright orange, smile. I was playing match maker and found these odd blue-purple-pinkish kind of beads that interestingly enough, when I gather them all together in my beads tray, they matched perfectly.
Who would have though? Never in a million years, pink, blue and orange????
