The time has come for me to devote the better portions of my days to crafting, art and music in the hopes that by the end of July I will be ready to have my own little booth at the local Farmers Market as well as keep a well stocked Etzy site up and running!
So for my first project I decided to start with jewelry, and yesterday I spent the morning making new necklaces from old ones. This was much more fun than I anticipated! I am discovering that up-cycled design is very satisfying. There is such delight to be found in taking apart a necklace that no one wants or cares about, redesigning it and coming up with a beautiful new shape and appeal–that someone else later down the road can take apart all over again!
I think I will try to make myself into a professional up-cycling-necklace-designer. The world needs more of these.
Over the course of the morning I took apart several necklaces and ended up with six new ones. I will not post the how-to just yet. For now suffice it to say that I have six necklaces ready to be sold in July.
