|MY PEACE of JEWELRY - handcraft jewelry|
Tuesday, January 31, 2012
Jewelry or clothes do not have to be expensive to be well made. I picked up these great link chains from a shop in the Alpine Village in Torrance. Alpine Village is known for their month long Oktoberfest. Besides that, there is NO ONE there except the regular old-timers eating their bratwurst and beer. Anyway, went there a few weeks ago, just browsing the shops and ran accross this old guy, who had a storefront, but did not use it as such. Instead, he stored EVERYTHING, I mean EVERYTHING in this little tiny shop, i.e., paintings, clothes, furniture, jewelry; all piled up. The shop was so crammed with stuff you could not step two feet inside. So instead of selling from inside the store, the owner sets up a long table in front of the store and dumps jewelry into bowls for one to scour through. I found these for $10 dollars each. Nice heavy metal link chains.
