Making your own accessories can be so easy and inexpensive (really inexpensive if you compare it to the mall prices). Besides, you can create designs that suits your taste. =)
I am just so overwhelmed at the thought that I’m making accessories/jewelry again. I remember doing this at around the age of 10 to 12 and selling bead bracelets and clips to my friends.
