Shopping Is Therapeutic

I'm a shopaholic. I could be happy, sad, angry, or mad, but mostly bored. Of course I'm on Etsy when I get this strong desire to buy something. I decide to browse the Shop Local feature-you know where you view all the shops of the sellers who live in your city or state. There are a lot of sellers in the Washington, DC Metropolitan area. I am a huge jewelry lover, especially silver. I've always worn silver because here in DC, gold was (and in some cases still is) the ultimate status symbol when I was a teenager and young adult. If you wore gold, then you were the sh*t. Being the non-conformist that I am, I chose to wear silver to not only go against the grain, but to make a statement: I AM A LEADER, NOT A FOLLOWER!

To wrap this little story up, I bought this fab ring at Beads In The Belfry. She's having a sale-25% off-til 6 am Sunday for all you night owls. I will wear this swirly delight on my right pointer finger. I'm going to point at everyone now just to show off my ring. There's also another fab seller whose in DC, CeCe St. Croix. She makes really lovely silver hammered jewelry. I favorited both of these artists of course. Well, I'm going to continue looking for interesting finds and feature them here. If you have something interesting you'd like to showcase, let me know. I love bragging about things I love!

Beautiful ring, I haven't even attempted to make any rings yet but if I do I hope they would be just as gorgeous.
