I had heard and read many times that when we go through some challenging times, it's like a caterpillar turning into a butterfly. It's not an easy process to break through the cocoon and spread your wings free, but the result is certainly worth it in the end.
So, today, I want to show you the design that I've created in my own design evolution...
|Stillness Earrings by Nathalie Lesage of NatLJ.com|
These earrings feature a gorgeous pair of luminous lampwork glass beads (I apologize, I did not note down the artist who made these as I bought them several years ago), a pair of my handmade .999 pure silver (PMC3) leaf charms, sparkling Swarovski Crystals on earth tones hemp cords and hypo-allergenic Niobium ear wires:
I love the explosion of color that occurs when the sunlight hits these earrings...
just like the wings of a blue butterfly in the sun :)
As a jewelry designer, I've worked with many different types of supplies, and learned many techniques over the years, all with the end goal of "finding my own voice" in terms of design.
As hard as the past 5 months (already) have been for me, I feel that this whole experience is helping me hone in to my own 'design' voice. It seems that I've finally found it.
This feels like 'me', 1000000%.
I will be exploring this style further. Exciting times ahead ;)
Many thanks for stopping by to read...
