In the middle of a pandemic, it’s easy to forget the scores of older folks and grandparents tucked away from the outside world.
Billie Fischer (AKA my MOM!) is a vibrant, typically busy, fashion and art enthusiast who suddenly found herself homebound with a burning desire to be both useful and creative. Never one to sit around watching TV, she asked me if I needed any help with Wishbeads.
In short order, I had her stringing some new bracelets for our African Recycled Glass Bead Collection and polishing up some brass cylinders. When I ran out of things for her to do, I encouraged her to take her efforts one step further by designing one-of-a-kind Wishbeads using bead samples I had sourced over the years.
And just like that, a new collection was born – Bling By Billie!
There's only ONE of each bracelet and when they'e gone, they're gone. We'll be showcasing a few at a time, so keep your eye out for a style that speaks to you! She even includes a sweet note to boot!
Creativity keeps you young, makes you smile, and brings you joy. If you've been longing for any of that in your life, then I hope you make some time to get crafty. Coloring books, origami, watercoloring, knitting, gardening, sketching, or making a vision board are all great activities to spark your heart.
You deserve to have some fun!
