Stuff vs. Meaning

I wear a lot of jewelry, a lot of the time. I’ve made every piece I wear (except my wedding ring) and each piece has its own meaning to me. I always wear the second ring I ever made. Why? Because I made it for me, because I wanted a silver and turquoise ring and after making the first one, I discovered I could make one that I would wear. It symbolizes to me that I can do this, I can make something that measures up.

Don’t Fear the Flame

“I want to learn how to solder but I’m SO afraid of the torch!” I hear this all the time. Many artists that create beautiful, beaded creations want to go to the next level and learn to solder so that they can add pendants to their pieces. What’s holding them back? Fear of fire!
