Digging for Treasure

I mentioned over the weekend that I had recently gathered up "treasure" that included some gold "coins" or medallions and had drilled a hole in one of them to include in my project of the week.

I've had such fun wearing it this week because the shell pearls and sparkly beads are so pretty, but also because that coin and the little charms make it very fun.

A friend and I went into a local shop to pick up the bracelet chains and just couldn't help but dig through a large container of plastic beads with a little shovel.
We probably spent an hour just scooping up beads and looking closely at them to pick out a baggie full for $1.99. It was seriously good and inexpensive therapy! You will need to click on this photo to get a close-up view of the little smiley faces, dice and all around silly beads. :)

I can't wait to get these worked into a piece of jewelry so I can be reminded of the day we were digging for treasure!

Those beads are so fun! Are you going to pack them all onto the same bracelet!?!?

Beautiful! Too much fun with those beads! I can't wait to see what unfolds!

That would be a fun bracelet! In memory of digging through a huge box of beads. Who could have resisted that?

My mom and I go to a bead store with a large bead pond. We sit there for hours just sifting through the beads to find a little bag of treasures - It is so relaxing (like being at the beach looking for treasures). Hope you will post your finished creations.
