Hello everyone! This week’s flash fiction challenge comes from Charli Mills at Carrot Ranch. This week’s prompt is:
In 99 words (no more, no less) write a story about the work of many hands. Is it a cooperative effort or something else? Go where the prompt leads!
I made a piece of jewelry that can be worn as a bracelet, anklet, and necklace (BAN). It also serves as a fidget toy for adults and kids. I’m still testing this to see how much abuse it can withstand.
My friend and her husband were impressed, but when told them it was $45, they thought it was too expensive. You tell me: magnetic hematite, Swarovski crystals, and aqua beads, 207 beads altogether.
I thought about all the hands that a piece of jewelry would go through before reaching the consumer – materials manufacturer, components retailer, jewelry maker, retailer, consumer – five hands.
Thanks for reading. A more in-depth post on this design will be published in the future with additional images.
