I enjoy working on at least one creative project daily or every other day. As I always say, there is never a dull moment!
The creative process is all-consuming and keeps me busy, focused and at the end of it all, the lovely results keep me on a natural high!
One of my many creative, hands-on activities is to string together my own jewellery pieces. I have been doing it for years, and I even teach others to do the same, if anyone is interested to learn.
Recently a head-rest made out of jade had come undone, scattering all these cool-to-the-touch rectangle pieces all over the place. My first thought was to piece them back together, but then when I ‘saw’ the prettier alternative in my mind’s eye, I got to work immediately.
With the inspiration edging me on, I completed the upcycling project all in one afternoon and voila! I had fashioned a new necklace and bracelet set with the jade rectangular pieces. As the jade pieces were too heavy for the ears, this set, when worn, would have to be complemented with other jade earrings.
Every morning before leaving my room, I am always completely dressed – and that means with a full set of jewellery too….many of which are of my own handiwork of course.
