I watched a movie just recently called Plastic Ocean and I have to say, it had a huge impact on me. I won’t go into all the details but let’s just say my attitude towards what I create and how much I create has changed incredibly. Rather than create a pile of things which will inevitably end up in a box somewhere, I’ve decided to create with thought and finish things off. So today I made necklaces and earrings – Bohemian inspired.
I’ve also decided to use supplies I already have rather than buy more. I can hear you all laughing at me now…and yes, it sounds un-doable but I plan on giving it a red hot go! I found so much “stuff” in the recent studio cleanup and honestly, half of it I had forgotten about, so no more buying “stuff” – time to use it up.
Today, I dragged it all out and got creating.
I decided to use some of the polymer clay leaves I’ve been creating lately.
I used Swarovski crystals, feather, antique gold findings and wired most of it all together with coloured artistic wire.
and you know, I never make earrings…but I thought today would be a good day to make some. Actually I thought these might be nice gifts for the participants at the Las Vegas Clay Carnival…and what fun it is to make earrings!!
I’m looking forward to more studio time now and exploring more earrings perhaps.
I hope everyone has had a great day.
