Busy, Busy Bee
Been busy humming along...
I've been trying to keep up with my dreams of new jewelry ideas. Literally. Every night I dream of a new piece, or sometimes if I'm lucky the same piece for a couple of nights. The hard part is trying to take the dream to the sketchbook. The time-consuming part is figuring out how the dream translates into a piece, and then shopping for materials. The making is the exciting part, even though it can be frustrating when something is not working out the way you thought it might. But the dreams have been steady.
To buy time while I work out the new pieces, I reworked some pieces and relisted. I took my classic PIKO Earrings (which is what I started my shop with) and reworked them in sterling silver instead of craft wire, snapped some new photos and put it up. I also put up some better photos of my Crystal Romance Earrings. I think the only other relist I'll work on is a single listing of the Crystal Romance Necklace, since the dreams are all under the Hawaiian influence.
I did finish a piece that I've posted a sneak peek here for you. I'm still composing the listing and working out the material costs, so stay tuned. My Mom covets this pair of gold and olive green dangle earrings, and I must say, I love them too. This is my first work in gold and I think I am HOOKED!
And with that I'll bid you all Aloha ahiahi ia oukou!
