My mom gets a Silpada catalog every so often, and their jewelry is extremely expensive for what it is. For example, I saw a glass bead and sterling silver bracelet and it was $60. At a pottery shop, a similar bracelet was $55. I found the same type of beads all in blue for 5 dollars at my local craft store, a watch head, and some other stuff to make an awesome watch. The final cost of the watch was $25 and 15 minutes of time and it was exactly the way I wanted it. Check it out!
