My sister gave me a necklace and took it back. So I said, “Whatever, I’ll make some myself. How hard could it be?” Well, it’s pretty hard. The first one I made looked like smokey quartz and metal throw up. The problem was my trying to make something ornate and showy when that’s not my style at all. So, the second time around I ignored what I thought I should make and came up with this little guy. It’s two strands of beads with metal cylinders that can slide around. Much more me.
I sent it to my friend L, who has always been a loyal supporter of the blog. She’s extremely creative, so I asked her to send me a pic of the necklace as she saw fit. It reminds me of an impressionist painting and I love it. I find that design pressure lessens when you’re making things for friends. They’re like doting parents; you could give them a piece of cardboard and they’d say you were a genius. So for now my jewelry making will be a creative project between me and my friends.
