I put myself through college by making jewelry, thank goodness as now, I have no student loans! (thank all available gods.)
The upshot is that I have LOADS of beads to get rid of, as I just don't have time to make the jewels so much these days.
From my travels, I have picked up charms and beads at flea markets, vintage shops, thrift shops, yard sales, bead shops, the world wide.
Some pieces I can't recall where I got, but I have made a little list to describe as best as I can.
as always, the auction starts at 99 cents. CLICK HERE FOR THE EBAY LINK.
