Where have you traveled lately?
I like to travel & I like keeping souvenirs ranging
from fridge magnets to inexpensive art.
I also like to make my own souvenirs that
don't scream, "I bought this in Rome" or
"I found this in San Francisco".
Some souvenirs are subtle but tell a story.
Remember this necklace?
It's a simple chain with different beads -- each
bead reminding me of a place I've visited.
This week, I'm making more of these necklaces.
They allow me to travel without having to hop on a plane!
Today's blah: these tiny people charms.
They're really earrings. I bought them in Brazil
but the shopkeeper said they were made in Peru.
They remind me of what I love about Latin America:
warm, friendly & hardworking people with very
colorful cultures and cuisines.
Here's how I turned them into a Tada!:
Instead of wearing them on my earlobes,
I attached them to a gold chain.
I added small gold hearts and pendants
that work as open lockets, too!
