A quick little bracelet

I have a new obsession.

It's a website called Listia and I'm hooked. It's like an online garage sale auction. You earn credits by selling your own stuff (for credits) or doing some of the activities they have available. No money exchanges hands unless you charge for shipping or win an auction that charges shipping.

Anyway, I have bought all kinds of stuff on there and it's so much fun because I'm not breaking the bank doing it. :0)

Recently I won these little bead doo-hickies that someone had left over from their own project.

 They were hand twisted on the wire and there were just the five of them. I had no idea what I was going to do with them, but I liked them.

Well, when they arrived and I could see the actual size of them all live and in person I knew exactly what I would do.

I grabbed a few jump rings and a clasp.

Then, a few curse words later, wallah....

I had a new bracelet!!

I'm thrilled with the outcome (and the price). Especially since (little known fact here) I'm a bracelet junkie!!

OK, it might be a pretty obvious fact since I almost never leave home without at least one bracelet on. I know people that won't leave home without lipstick, my Mom won't leave without earrings, and for me it's bracelets....and earrings....and make up..... lol

If you haven't been to Listia yet, go check it out. I usually narrow my search to just look at the craft stuff, but there are all kinds of things to score. However, if you get hooked I hold no've been warned.
