I hope you are having a good week. This week is a busy one for me. It started out Monday with having some tests for my annual heart transplant check-up. On tap is the normal Blood work, Chest X-ray and Bone Density Scan but this is just the beginning as I will have another whole day of tests on the 21st. I have to admit that I dread the trip to Hahnemann and a whole day of poking and prodding but it always makes me pause to Thank God for another year, as well as the beginning of a new year. Plus I always have a friend who drives and keeps me company, Huge Thanks to Joanne. I am extremely grateful!
What lays ahead for this new year? It promises to be very busy and challenging since starting A Jewelry Masterpiece for You. I am looking forward to the upcoming opening of my very own Etsy shop. I am hoping to have it open for business in June. That is just a couple of weeks away and there are still many things to do, but that will be the place to see and buy a Masterpiece of your very own. Please remember that I not only custom design but also repair jewelry. So if you have a favorite piece that you are unable to wear because the clasp broke or it is just looking old and needs an update, allow me to create something just for you that you will love once again.
Have a Great Weekend!
Well this week I want to add to a blog I started a couple of weeks ago. As we discussed first I choose my beads.
Then I work on a design. Things usually start to fall into place as I choose the different beads. Don’t let me fool you though, I sometimes think for days on a design before it actually comes together. This time I changed the beads from my original thought.
After I changed the beads everything fell into place. Next it is just a matter of stringing in the proper order. Even then I may take them all off and change things.
The final test is to carefully hold the open-ended string and place it around my neck to see how it will look. Then I finish off the string with the closures and Viola! a new Masterpiece.
These steps sound simple and in reality are simple to actually do. It is the process of putting things together just right to make an attractive necklace that is really the challenge. Some come together with great ease…while others are quite challenging.
Each set is an exciting process and I very much enjoy creating new designs. I get my inspiration from lots of different sources including other jewelry, art, creation, and even clothing.
Write back and tell me what things inspire you.
I would Love to create something special just for you!
Have A Great Weekend!
