Thanks for all your great quotes, I love finding out what makes other people smile :)
I got all my press releases orginized, printed and beautifully and funkily packedged and posted, so heres hoping I get featured in Vogue! And because of that I have been busy making and listing in the shop, you know in case 100's of customers come flooding my way!
I have been sorting out my stock and found so many tiny bits of chain or random beads that I hang on top, just in case, and have finally been inspired to use them. My cousin was over for a visit the other day and she came through to the studio to have a nosey through my bead boxes and she started selecting random beads. Then she picked up 3 pieces of chain and layed them out and placed the beads on top, a said, "I would wear a bracelet like that!".
And so my "Something old, something new" collection was born. I love how they are not all neat and exact, with 5 of this stone or 10 of this bead and all balanced and shiney. Sometimes I get to close to a design and want it formal and balanced. This new random flow has been so exciting to make plus I'm getting to use up otherwise redundant bits and bobs.
Do you like things neat and ordered or do you draw ontop of the lines?
