Confession: Every day, I spend an hour or so checking out eBay and other online shopping sites. Now this does not mean that I shop online every day; I simply browse through the listings. It's virtual window shopping, if you will. Typically, the following are the search terms I use when I am not looking to buy something specific:

I like making jewelry with filigree pieces, hence, the search for wonderful materials every day on eBay. On my local eBay, most of the listings I meet are of the finished jewelry variety. Sometimes, though, I end up buying these necklaces or earrings for the purpose of refashioning them into designs I like. But when I'm looking for a specific filigree material, I go to Etsy.
