perpetrating & wilson balls
Next week Lisa and I are going to start tennis lessons. Our instructors name is Sid. Why does that make me laugh? Maybe because it reminds me of the name Sven. Which- nothing is wrong with either name, they just make me laugh. Anyway- I haven't picked up a racket since I was very little. When every member of my family had a racket and occasionally played tennis. Let's hope Lisa and I are both equally bad.
This weekend is the big holiday boutique. Yikes! I will be selling my jewelry. For some reason I am feeling really unsure about the pieces. At first I started making jewelry that I thought other people would like. Dangling earrings and things I typically don't wear.
Then I reazlied that if I made pieces I like and I don't sell them, then at least I would have jewelry that I would wear. Truth is the items that I made that were things I would wear I feel more confident about.
I am selling, earrings, bracelets, zipper pulls, keychains, book marks, cell phone charms, necklaces, toe rings and wine charms. Some of the jewelry is Swavorski Crystals ( I am just addicted to all the colors). A lot of hammered silver and gold pendants. Then there are a lot of silver chain items. Some gold. Some leather. Organza. I have two favorite necklaces. So I won't be disappointed if those don't sell.
I'm also having a hard time setting prices. Some of the other girls that are selling jewelry are selling their pieces for a lot. Well at least it seems like it to me. (necklaces $65 and up) I really just enjoy makingthe jewelry so if I make money that is a plus. I mostly just hope people feel inspired to wear the jewlery. And of course feel good when they wear it.
