Smiley Faces!!

I love smiley faces!! :) Now that makes for some happy jewelry!!!

I've always doodled smiley faces and I can't seem to write a card or note without one!

I have used smiley faces in a number of jewelry projects.

I have knotted hemp cord around them, dangled them from bracelets and used them countless times in memory wire bracelets!

I think there is a smiley for everyone nowadays! There are plastic smileys, sterling smileys, Pandora smileys and smiley charms!

The one thing I keep on my desk at work is a classic yellow smiley coffee mug from the 1970's.

It's just to look at, not to drink out of :) I was so excited to find it at an antique show many years ago!

Can you see a smiley face and not smile back? I don't know if I can. Maybe on the outside I'm not actually smiling, but I am on the inside! That still counts!

I'd love to see other people's smiley jewelry that was made for adults. Wouldn't it be fun if we all made a smiley piece and I shared them all on a blog post?

If you have one, I'd love to see it and share it so.... please email me if you think that sounds like fun!

This post made me smile! Did you know the original smiley was created back in 1963? That's a lot of smileys since then!

A smiley challenge! How great! I can't wait to see what people come up with. I've got some polymer clay that would be perfect for this.

I also collect the smiley beads but do not have anything currently created. I would be up to the challenge of making something with these fun beads.

I only have some fridge magnets, which a co-worker gave to me when I had a hard time working for my former firm. They still make me smile!
