Have you ever seen the movie "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" - the original one? I'm sure most of us have seen it at least once, after all, it is a classic.
I remember each time when Charlie bought a chocolate bar and while he was opening it up, I felt as if I were right there with him - waiting to see the Golden Ticket! Each time I felt Charlie's sadness and pain when it was just a piece of chocolate. Okay, it made my eyes wet too.
Charlie, who did not have money to spend, found a coin and was able to buy one more bar. The anticipation on his face and the determination in his opening process was far too much for me to bare. I was on the edge of my seat. I tried to hurry him up, but he couldn't hear me. Then there was the long pause... and with one final whoosh of pulling the paper back, there it was! The Golden Ticket! I felt the joy right along side Charlie and cried happy tears.
This is how I felt after creating my new Golden Elfin Earwires! I just love them to pieces and owe many thanks to one of my buyers who asked me about creating in gold filled wire. She will be getting a special surprise when I mail her package tomorrow :)
I posted my Golden Elfin earwires & my Golden Hoops this morning. I have more to create with gold and, just like Charlie, am off to the Chocolate Factory.
Happy Friday everyone!
