Another thing that I like to play with in my jewelry is old optical lenses. I bought a whole set at a flea market.
I collect all kinds of old handwriting. I love the beauty of handwriting from years ago.
My kids learned how to find four leaf clovers from a friend of mine. They can now go out and find them right away.
One day last summer I needed some to make this jewelry.
I told the kids that I would pay them a dollar for each four leaf clover they could find.
Thinking this challenge might cost me...... maybe twenty dollars.
In about a half hour my kids cam into the house with FISTFULS!
I mean fistfuls... to the tune of 240 four leaf clovers!
Not at all what I expected!
I made a deal with them, so I had to follow through, but I got them to agree to put the most of the money into their savings account.
I put them into my jewelry to add a little luck to each piece!
