Jewelry by Day...

Hi, It's Trixie again.

Ever walk along the sidewalk and see a penny? Ever take a walk in the woods and notice acorns or tiny smooth rocks? Most of you might just step over these items, or even on them, Heaven forbid. For me, though, I'm always on the hunt for such treasures. These are some of the things I use to create my one-of-a-kind bracelets, necklaces and earrings. And maybe the occasional pin, if the mood strikes.

You see, I needed a day job. Yes, I'm a tooth fairy, but I can only do that after dark. People might frown on a woman climbing in a kid's bedroom window at three in the afternoon. And besides, stealing teeth pays nothing. And I have to pay my rent and buy cat food, you know? Otherwise my spoiled cats might...well, we won't go there for now. Let's just say there would be growling and thrashing tails if I came home without their supper. And nobody wants that!

I have a small shop in town. It's not much, but it's all I need for now. I'm not very well-known yet, business-wise, so my money has to stretch really far. My best friend, Julie, works there with me. I make the jewelry and she does all the advertising, pays the bills, and does most of the sales work. I love making jewelry! I just wish we had a few more customers.

Well, better get back to the bottlecap earring I'm painting. See ya later!
