I always loved buying at Birks. You always knew what you got there.
I also always loved making my own accessories with semiprecious

Fresh water pearls, Tiger eye, bell mother of pearl beads, black stone beads, etc...

Aqua marine beads have always been my favorite and I wore necklaces and bracelets
made out of them, all the time.

 Crystal, always sparkled in the sun.
One could always see colors on the wall wearing them.
Necklaces made out of crystal were always beautiful for evening wear.

and then I'd play and make some colorful things to wear on the beach and the hot sand
to match my bathing suits.

I have a lot more somewhere but this is the box I found today.
Looking at them now I think I can redo them and refresh them into
nicer ones.
I have lots of beads  to work with and more once I find them lol

Have a good one.

Adam we always trusted Birks as customers.
Birks and Peoples Jewelry. Now there are so many other stores and you don't know what you are buying anymore.
