"Creating New Jewelry Collections For Sale''

 I Want to apologise to all of my daily words of encouragement fans, for not getting the word out to you every day; because of my  new jewelry collect collections that I have been working on. I'm working on two jewelry lines, one I discovered, I can take regular sea shells and make beautiful and unusual jewelry. The idea came to me, when I ordered a Chinese buffet meal and got sea shells that had an appetizer of crab and cheese on a sea shell, that tasted delicious .  The idea came to me to keep the sea shells for  for later, for the prospect of making jewelry. Months later I went back to the Chinese Restaurant to get another meal with more sea shells for my up coming jewelry collection.  Since the sea shell crab meat appetizers was on a later meal, I was asked if I wanted to pay for the later meal and get the sea shell appetizers then and I said I would pay for them. she asked how many did I want and I said four ,because I didn't want to be greedy,.  I told her what I was trying to do with the sea shells I was getting and she understood. I showed her picture of the jewelry I had already made and she was impressed with what she had seen.

When I make it up in  my mind  to do a new thing, I follow through until I finish.  I have come up with two lines of jewelry, my sea shells collection and my tile collection; I thought both of my ideas was a brainstorm that I came up with and I would like to share my creations with you all . Not to forget I also found a bold red Coke Cola cap and made a coke a cola classic necklace set. I guess the old adage is true that one man's trash is another man's treasure.  I came up with the idea to call the Chinese restaurant to see if they would collect the thrown away shell and I would pay a small for them, and the young lady took my number and told me she would talk with the manager and call me back,. Ten minutes later she call me and told me that the manager said that i could have to shells for thirty cent a shell.  Boy, I was thrilled; she ask me how many did I want, I told her thirty and went an pick them up. I also went to pick up other jewelry making products , so *I could get started right away making my sea shell jewelry. I also went to the GoodWills store and pick up some painted tile and decided that this would be another jewelry line that I could make and I did.

Before you make the sea shell jewelry, you have to sand it down, file away jagged edges, make it smooth  and then paint it with acrylic paint, then shellac it and  after it dries, decorate it and then you can make in to a necklace and earrings. I have compile together , quite a few picture for you all to see for your self and make your own judgement on how well I did with my Sea shell jewelry and my Tile jewelry. I hope you enjoy my little jewelry fashion show.
