We all like positive compliments and it is especially nice to receive one about something I made. I received this compliment on a rosary: “Loved it, very beautiful. Makes a great birthday gift.” Sometimes, I am struggling to learn something new, or have miscounted the beads or the wire breaks (which is not supposed to happen), or glue my fingers and I forget that in the end I hopefully have made something that is beautiful and will make someone happy. I love making things, and get totally immersed in it. The world outside does not exist, it is just me, the beads, the pattern, the light. It is like saying a prayer. It takes me to the height of happiness. Please visit LuckySammyJewelry to see some of the items which have given me great joy.
