I have a theory about seasonal change....
I'm sure you are familiar with the subconscious desire people have to eat comfort foods as the weather turns colder.
My theory is the same goes for having a subconscious desire for "comfort beads". In my case, I begin seeing stones in a very different way.
Throughout most of the summer, I have pretty much snubbed gems, but come a 40 something degree day and my eye begins to wander toward the stone beads.
Interesting or crazy? Well, I'm not entirely sure! I'm curous as to whether or not anyone else has witnessed or experienced the same thing!
