I've been collecting vintage jewelry and jewelry parts since I was in high school (an ice age ago), and findings, beads, etc for almost as long. Not to mention a serious addiction to craft stores. So the very thought of counting every single bead, jumpring, etc, seems a bit daunting.
But strangely, it appeals to the OCD part of my personality. I LOVE minutia, in fact I've made a career of managing bits of information in my other life as a digital content manager. Makes perfect sense that I'd be a jewelry maker, with my love of tiny things and attention to detail! LOL!
All for now,
