Spring is not only a time that the garden calls my name, but so does my craft room. A few weeks ago I was in a craft store looking for I don’t remember what, and I was sucked into the jewelry-making aisle. It was like a vortex of color and light calling me into it’s rainbow tunnel. “Amber…Amber..Look at all the beautiful colors!!!!!” I was a total sucker. Between the glistening glass and the “40% off” signs, I was a gonner.
“I could use a pair of pink earrings.”
“I love the idea of paper beads.”
“Natural elements in jewelry are so appealing to me.”
I had no problem talking myself into it.
Let me tell you something friends-if you are looking for a little color and decor in your lives, then go to the nearest bead dispensary. 10 bucks can go a long way; especially when a sale is happening.
We have hands and we should use them to create. Play with color. Play with wire. Play with simplicity. Play with complexity.
GO OUT AND PLAY.
