Simple and Fun Jewelry Work
I always make it a point to bring along my little plastic compartment box full of beads and little jewelry making treasures I have found during our road trip adventures. Stopping off in little towns along the way you are sure to find a rock and gem store where you can pick up some of the most unique pieces to incorporate into a simply strung beaded bracelet or necklace. In my kit that I keep on board I have a variety of beads, feathers, crimping beads, a pair of needle nose pliers (for the crimping beads) and a spool of elastic bead cord – easily found at craft stores or online. This kit can grow quickly so I make sure to leave some extra compartments empty in order to accommodate beads and supplies I’ll find in the future. The process of stringing beads and creating as you go is truly meditative, especially with the sound of raindrops outside.
