Rock and roll! That is the phrase I use when I have all my supplies right next to me and I create an assembly line of earrings. I didn’t reach my goal of 100 pairs of earrings, but I did fill up this earring display I got last year for the Christmas Bazaar.
I found the display at a thrift store in Manzanita, Oregon for $4.00! Then I spent probably $10.00 on the magnets. LOL The magnets have a little metal swirl with a hook that I glued on with E6000 so now I have a place to store my earrings on their cards. The display holds 64 earrings and I got it filled!
I can’t “rock and roll” without everything at my fingertips.
I sort the larger beads according to matched sets so I don’t waste time sorting.
I use clear acrylic box frames for fast and easy access to the seed beads and metal spacers and elements.
Some of my beads are from jars of necklace I purchase at Goodwill. TIP: (wash them carefully in a bowl of hot soapy water and let them dry right away.) Other beads and findings I get a craft store and NEVER purchase unless 40%-70% off regular price.
I don’t purchase expensive findings or beads because my product is intended to be fun and the price point is perfect for someone who wants some style to add to their t-shirt and jeans.
I got my earring display completely filled up! It has been fun to make jewelry this week, but I hope the garage sales have some cool stuff to repurpose that is NOT jewelry. LOL Have a Happy Friday!!!!!
