I lost a lot of stuff last week. I lost my gold Swarovski crystals. I lost my bag of things I was going to ship. I lost the bag of pieces I was going to blog about. It all got lost in a great big Christmahannukwanzadan chaos.
Finally I found the gold Swarovski crystals. They were in my box of angel parts. (Bet you didn't know angels had parts.) And then I found the BLOG bag, which was tucked in with the various earrings bags, right behind the CHRISTMAS bag, and in front of the WINTER BAG. And finally I found the SOLD bag. I had tucked it into the box of bracelets. But when I started going through the bracelets, I realized that a lot of their listings were gone.
Vanished! POOF! Gone! Not on ebay. Not on etsy. Not anywhere. So I went through my box of bracelets (which, I guess, is my inventory of bracelets, but I'm trying not to get too technical here). And I made a BIG pile of bracelets that were no longer listed and were, therefore, lost.
Happily I could find photos of most of them. So I relisted all of them (except the ones I need to re-photograph) and here they are, so you can see how lost I really was. All of them are now in my eBay store. At least, they'd better be, or I'll know that even more mysterious forces are at work.
A Springlike Bracelet...
A Hanukkah bracelet done in blue gemstones and sterling charms:
A fertility bracelet. (Alas, it didn't breed in the box and make new fertility bracelets.)
TWO bracelets of Buddha' Blessings. Does that mean two people went un-blessed?
A bracelet about the Ghosts of the California Gold Rush, in pyrite and hematite.
A St. Patrick's Day bracelet:
And the snowman bracelet that was in last week's blog post. It was lost, I found it and re-photographed and re-listed it, did the post, and promply lost it again.
My mother used to tell me I'd lose my head if it weren't attached to my body.
Turns out she was right.
