Shhh. Don't Tell.

Working hard over the weekend finishing up a new piece that will ultimately be dropped off to my friends at RETRO and putting the finishing touches on a really late Christmas gift.  Although I spend most of my time using gently used findings, beads and miscellaneous parts and pieces to make my jewelry, it is fun to spend time making all NEW stuff.  I am not going to reveal the finished product because the recipient of this gift may be looking at this blog between now and when I am handing it over.  Last year, I made a simple hand-knotted fresh water pearl bracelet for her with the most adorable charm of two peas in a pod.  This year, I did something similar and continued the tradition.  Enjoy SRB!

This might be your jewelry

It's like warming up and stretching out for a big relay race, fortunately though, I will not need to run.  What I mean is all this repair work is getting me back into "shape" for making some original jewelry...some ReMarydOriginals Jewelry.  So, if you see something in this picture that looks familiar, this might be your jewelry and it is wearable again.

If you don't see anything that looks like something you gave to me to fix or change, then you are on my list. THE List.  The list that includes new pieces for my buddies at RETRO, P!CK, and, of course, BOOKENDS.  Motivation and inspiration are blooming in my downstairs jewelry studio....and I am crossing one item off the list at a time.

Friends!  With a burst of energy, I come to you at the beginning of 2017.  In an attempt to really push myself and reach new heights in creativity, I am back to blogging.  This blog will be my "companion" that encourages me to make, create, get involved with jewelry and really breathe new life into, what I consider, my art.

This is a really off-the-wall take on a wrap bracelet made from the parts of a necklace I made several years ago.  It is a completely new look.  I added a bit of thin leather but kept the big chunky chain, one very large effervescent semi-precious blue stone, and sassy glass pearls.                                                                                                    ↦

It is with this post that I set my goal for feeding my creative self and making an effort, everyday, to work.
