Seeking Serendipity - Molly Murphy


Looking for one-of-a-kind gifts this holiday season? Paper bead jewelry could be the answer!
Shopping at Seeking Serendipity offers you upcycled, stylish & completely unique jewelry -- the perfect gift for someone special!
I believe in living an eco-friendly lifestyle. Each piece I sell has been handmade by me, and all paper beads used in my work have been handcrafted with re-purposed papers and sealed with a non-toxic & water based sealer. My beads are both totally unique and eye-catching.
I'm 18 and I've been sick for almost half of my life. Like many of the others here, I have chronic Lyme disease, and am undergoing long-term treatment. My goal is to create an income for myself by working from home on the days that my health allows. I cannot work a "normal" job, but I would love to be able to help my parents pay for some of my medical expenses.
Thanks for looking!!
Wishing you a peaceful holiday season, and a healthful new year.

You are one amazing chick! I love your jewelry, I can't wait to get the earrings I ordered. They are for a very special friend, but I will have to check them out before I wrap them up and send them on their way.

Today I am inspired by you and your positive outlook. I really think you are fabulous, brave, smart and creative. You are one of the Lymies on the top of my "I want to meet in person" list!

I absolutely love Molly's jewellery and ideals! She is an inspiration to all. I suffer from chronic crohns disease and know how difficult it can be to remain positive when living with long-term illness. I am inspired by her attitude to her illness and to life. I wish her well. I have shared her link on my facebook profile: http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1484241238 My email is tizdesigns@hotmail.co.uk

Molly, I think you know how fabulous I think you are ;) Your spunk, humor and tenacity never fails to shine through.

What inspires me most nowadays is the kind, compassionate, empathetic people that this disease puts in my path. I actually feel honored to know such selfless people. If I had never contracted this horrible disease, I honestly think I would have gone my entire life without meeting anyone as benevolent as those I have recently met. I think the amazing people that I'm meeting not only inspire me, but are helping shape me into the person I'm meant to become.

Molly, you're one of those people!
