CRAFTY MONDAY-JEWELRY – 5
The Story Behind my Red Coral Necklace
I remember that in one of my travels to San Diego, I found an invitation card in my hotel room for a one-day-a-year open house to a jewelry wholesale company. They indicated that if you miss that day, you’ll have to wait until next year. By that time, I had been curious about trying to learn that hobby and the card caught my attention.
I went to the place expecting a normal beads store. When I saw the facility, I was totally overwhelmed. It was like the size of Costco and Sam’s however, only full of beads. They had rows and rows for each color. I had no idea of what to do; however, while walking down the red beads area, these red beads caught my attention. They are corals and since I did not know how to do anything with them, I bought them and took them home with me. It took almost a year after I purchase them for me to attend a basic beads workshop and probably two more before I felt confident to work with these nice beads.
Well, this is the final product. That is what I came up with after many tries. Again, it doesn’t take much to create a one-of-a-kind piece. Try it!
