I know many of us get in a so called, "unproductive-stuck zone", when it comes to thinking up something different to make. I dispise these times, but they are inevitable, at least for me. It was just last week I was reading the comments of a fellow beader that said they just wanted to give up, going no where, sales were down and feeling so discouraged. Well, welcome to the club. These emotions are not uncommon and I've found they don't last. Those of us who love this release of energy love it too much to quit. I suppose the challenge is there for me too, it's all part of the process.
One thing I do when this happens is to scroll back through my sold items. I can see new ways to re-make an older design utilizing the inventory I currently have or a whole new idea all together. This past week I created versions of an older design and remembered just how gorgeous they are.
The only thing that remained the same from this original design is the stones and the old metal wraps above them. Everything else was new based off of some previous work I just finished.
Similar design using green Kyanite with Prehnite above, silver saucers and chain fringe on each side.
One must have some earthy goodness with Mystic Quartz in a lovely root beer color mixed with copper, gold and silver though out.
So there you have it, we've all been there and it's OKAY. You'll find your mojo eventually and perhaps going through some old designs will help you get there, ♥
Thanks for visiting this week and always, appreciate your feedback and comments, ☺
