Jewelry Therapy

This necklace was made for my boss for a holiday or a birthday celebration.  The focal piece was a broken brooch from an online auction and part of the necklace above the brooch are links from a broken bracelet.  Making this necklace made me realize how lovely a broken brooch or bracelet can make a newer work of jewelry. 

When I don't have time to sit down and work on something crafty or jewelry related, I tend to get a little cranky.  I find that I will have bursts of creative energy to really be productive on jewelry projects.  Those times are what my friend Mary calls "jewelry therapy".  For some reason working with my hands is cathartic and helps me cope.  I also just like to make pretty stuff!!  My goal is to have some jewelry therapy today, but we will see what the day holds.
