But, do you ever have a piece of jewelry that does not want to be what you want it to be? Well, this bracelet was reworked twice until I just wanted to admit defeat. What is wrong with it you ask? Looks great…except on a wrist, which kind of defeats the purpose.
I almost just turned it into a necklace, but I really didn’t want to and then I remembered my dream catcher; it was made by Lindsey Starr of Phantasm Creations. You might know her from Art Jewelry Elements.
I kept meaning to decorate it, but it was something I wanted to add to over time with different pieces of trinkets that meant something to me. Then, making sure it meant something meaningful became something that paralyzed me into not adding anything at all. This has happen to me a few times before, especially if I am trying to make a meaningful piece of jewelry, like for a significant event, purpose, or person.
Sometimes, you just have to start somewhere. Sometimes, just the start can get you on the right track eventually. The color palette was meant to inspire us and it was inspiring, just not in the way I expected…
