Frugality trend

In keeping with my frugality trend, I started making jewelry last summer. I purchased a few beads here and there as they go on sale





and in trying to keep fashionable without breaking the buget, I have also refurbished older pieces or flea market finds.
I have taught many of my students this skill and they too have been creating their own earrings and bracelets. In turn they have been very generous and gift me beads quite often.
To help save for retirement I also sell some so if interested just email me.
What about you, what kinds of things are you creating to save $$.

Me too, I traded a quilt for a huge box of beading supplies. It turned out that wow, I got the best deal on this trade! I had no idea what to do with all the svavorski crystal that I didn't know I had until a new friend enlightened me. I love your earrings. I'm wearing a set right now that I made.
Great idea! Lets do some more frugal ideas postings!
