So. In my huge collection of stuff I have beads, bead wires, spacers, threads and all of the paraphenalia associated with jewelery making. And every so often I am inspired to make something from this ever growing stash. Here's a couple of pics of the stash...
So in the world of jewelery what is still really hot at the moment are necklaces made up of slightly incongruent elements. The colours integrate but the necklace isn't symmetrical. This is harder than it sounds to recreate properly and I strive to make something beautiful each time I create a wearable item.
I was too late in taking some proper pics this evening as the children were enjoying playing in the garden and with a river at the end of the garden that takes some supervising believe me.
But here are the quick pics of what I've done today:
When I was at school I wanted to go to art college and fully explore the artistic side of myself that I knew existed. My parents, being more pragmatic, wanted something else for me and so I pursued a career working with people, that to their credit has stood me in good stead.
Now I get to pursue both of these avenues and that makes me very happy.
