60 and Change.

Today I thought about how I would like to have my age group described. I gave up trying to find the right adage. Instead I picked up a book and there it was on the page I opened to--60 AND CHANGE- a good description of who I am and where my friends over sixty years of my age dwell. Not a bad place especially if we have our health if not our muscle tone. We are 60 and at the corner of Change and Flux.

I started creating jewelry for sexy woman way back in my fifties. I liked the artistic part of designing necklaces, bracelets and earrings and stringing beads.

I also have sold my things in local shops and in a lovely maritime museum on Staten Island.

STAR LIGHT, STAR BRIGHT BEADS
GLISTEN LIKE STARS IN THE NIGHT.

I SAW THIS NATIVE AMERICAN POEM SOMEWHERE IN THE SOUTHWESTERN U.S.
BEADS HAVE BEEN LOVED BY EVERY CULTURE THROUGHOUT HISTORY. I LOVE THEM ALL AND AFTER I WENT BEAD SHOPPING THE FIRST TIME, I WAS HOOKED.
I AM ABLE TO GET MANY BEADS HERE IN NEW YORK CITY BUT I LOVE TO BUY THEM ALL OVER THE COUNTRY.
MY EYES GET STRAINED SOMETIMES AND I THEN BECOME BEADY EYED FROM WORKING ON JEWELRY PIECES .THAT IS HOW I CAME UP WITH THE NAME BEADYIDA. GET IT? ALSO, I HAD A VERY INTERESTING AUNT NAMED IDA AND I ADDED HER NAME IN AS A TRIBUTE TO A STRONG AND BEAUTIFUL WOMAN.
