    jewelry

    Are you a costume jewelry kinda gal? Do you have pierced ears? (I do).
    I must confess, I do like to wear a little bling once in a while. I noticed that my LQS has some cute pieces.

    I do occasionally although I rarely use jewelry (or makeup) anymore. I use to love rings, always did, but now I rarely go places and they interfer with my sewing :-).

    Some of the embroidery design outlets have some cute embroidery earrings and pendants though. I've made a few of those.

      I have pierced ears and usually wear earrings to work. Since I work at JoAnns, sewing themed jewelry is fun to wear.

        I don't wear a lot of jewelry. I do wear pins on my jackets. No pierced ears here, I tried and one ear just wouldn't heal up. Someone said I was allergic to nickel. Who knows!

          Absolutely NO jewelry for me. Not even a wedding ring. My body just will not allow it. Tried pierced ears twice, stayed infected both times, rings and bracelets break me out in huge welts. I can wear a necklace long enough to go to a wedding or funeral as long as I use lots of clear calamine both before and after.

            No pierced ears here, had them pierced years ago and often think about re-doing it since I have many ear rings I would like to wear. I do like to wear a pendant-sometimes a bit of a unique one will find it's way around my neck.

              Other than my wedding band and anniversary ring, I don't regularly wear jewelry. About the only time I wear more than my rings, is to a wedding or a funeral. Just not a fan I guess.

                Wow! Glad I asked the question. I feel naked without my earrings, even when I'm just hanging out at home and gardening. Something about that little hole looks unfinished to me. One time I was on my way to work and realized I forgot my earrings. Had to detour to a Walmart and from that point on I always kept a cheapo pair in my desk drawer, just in case. Now you'll all think I'm a nut job, lol.

                  Chelea, nope I don't think that you are nut job. I know people who always wear their jewelry. My grandma never took off her wedding band. I know of ladies who no matter what including illness always have their make-up on. We have an elderly lady in town who you will always see completely perfectly put together - nails, hair, heels, make-up, jewelry, either a dress or a dress suit even just to go to the grocery store.

                  Generally if I am out, I have on my wedding ring, watch, a special necklace, and earrings (I do have pierced ears). If I am at home, I usually never have on any jewelry. I think that comes from years ago, I would come home from school/work and remove all my jewelry so it would not get damaged on the farm. Plus, it was too dangerous to wear jewelry on the farm - chance of loosing a finger or getting a necklace caught and being choked to death.

                    I sometimes wear (and make) necklaces or bracelets, but never got my ears pierced so don’t wear earrings.

                      I have pierced ears. I usually wear small earrings, like the posts they originally put in. I have a simple wedding band with no stones. I have a bangle bracelet or two I sometimes wear.
                      Jewelry in the barn is messy, and depending on the kids I'm assigned, it can be dangerous.
                      I don't wear makeup either.

                        I have pierced ears and received a beautiful delicate pair of embroidered dragonfly earnings from my SS, Carlie. I love them. I also like bracelets.

                          I have pierced ears, usually wear smaller earrings. I wear my favorite necklace, wedding ring & one other ring all the time.

                            I wear my wedding and anniversary rings and that's about it. I do have pierced ears so I try to remember to wear earrings but that usually only happens on Sunday, when I also put on makeup. I'm pretty simple!

                              I have pierced ears and wear simple earrings most days even if I'm just going to be at home. Since I retired, I don't wear much of any other jewelry except for my wedding band and birthstone ring unless we are going out.

                              About this Group

                              Membership is now closed for 2019.

                              We had a lot of fun with the Secret Santa 2018 group last year. A lot of happy people received beautiful handmade gifts from their Secret Santa's. Each person made and received 12 gifts at Christmas that were made throughout the year, one a month based on a given theme. We learned new things, challenged our skills in a non-stressful way and got "down and dirty" creative. Plus at the end of the year we get 12 great gifts for Christmas!

                              This group is a commitment as you are signing on to create 12 gifts during the year. They can be smaller projects so any challenge is not overly difficult. Choose whatever difficulty you are comfortable with. You may also, twice a year, swap out the named theme for one of your own choosing. You may also purchase rather than hand make 3 items during the year.

                              If you would like to join please "subscribe", "join". Read the Rules in the discussion section and sign. You will receive a questionaire from the mod
