However, I do love to flex my creative muscles on a regular basis. And let's be frank, moving the beading needle back and forth between the piles of beads and whatever I'm working on HAS to burn some calories along the way, right? Right?
A lovely lady in town sometimes presents me with a different kind of creative exercise -- taking vintage pieces she has inherited and repurpose them into something she can wear on a regular basis.
This is FUN. And a little daunting, especialy since the most recent project is to create a necklace for her to wear at her son's wedding.
Here are the starting pieces:
|I do think I'll remove the jewelry box lint. |
It does add a little extra something, but not for a wedding!
|This is a bracelet, not an enormous necklace as it looks beside the other photo. |
It, too, will lose the jewelry box fluff.
Maybe I can make a second piece just from fluff and lint...
Because this is such an important and personal piece, she and I spent a lot of time discussing and trying different ideas before I grabbed the tools and started the revamping. Luckily, we had similar visions.
I can't wait to get started on the new creation. Perhaps I should put on my workout clothes first?
