Today was one of those days where everything I wanted to do or make would just not work. My efforts just turned into a mess. When my head is spinning like this, filled with crashing and disappointing projects; it just feels better to go back to my roots. Bead stringing in this case. I used a collection of purple beads including luscious recycled plastic beads and my sterling silver Life toggle and created a wearable art piece. It relaxed me, allowed my mind to ramble and settle its thoughts on new techniques and other things for my shop. Returning to familiar, welcoming territory is often the best inspiration.
