Paying Debts

I have debts. I'm sure you have debts.
maybe not, I don't REALLY know you.

Some are serious and some are not so.
And some are personal debts: something that you owe a friend because you value that person.
This is about a personal debt.
A while back, I sold three pairs of earrings to a friend of mine back home.
After she recieved them, she sent me 'a bunch of beads she wasn't going to use', and that she figured I 'could do something with.'

I was so surprised when I received an adorable little black box in the mail, and when I opened it...
it was stuffed with so, so, sooooo many great things!!
Opals, pearls, coral, even gold wire.

It was a little treasure chest.

I'm sorry that I don't have any pics to share of the experience.
What I do have to share are a couple of the earrings that I've made her as a thank you.
To repay my debt to her.

red coral on gold wire

blue pearls on silver wire

I hope that she loves them as much as I loved receiving her gift to me.

Have a great day!!

I had a friend do the same, and yes I immediately turned around and made her several pieces that she loved.
I received a note from a cousin I barely knew growing up and that I've only met twice as an adult, but chat with on facebook... and she said a friend gave her some beads and she thought of me... so she's going to send them to me... AFTER she looks around to see if anything catches her eye to add to it *L* Needless to say, she's going to get spoiled too :D Personal debts just as these are a joy to repay ! :)
