Wish List in Grey and Blue

Those who know me well, know that
my favorite colors are grey and blue...
Grey was not always a favorite, but has
become one the last couple of years..

Aren't they gorgeous ? ;)

258 photos

 I had to took me a while..
But I did it! yay me!
I was getting a bit tired of the plain
white background at my shop
so I thought about re shooting my items
using something softer, warmer...

In the meanwhile, I finished some
more Pearl oyster stud earrings!

So, what do you think?

Do you like the new background?

You know, it's true...
When you feel insecure or sad..
your brain brings back happy memories...
Usually those of your childhood..
If this is not the case for you,
then, you remember people
who made you happy...

When I m sad, I remember people whose
love made me feel secure and happy..

And, I came across this..

This crochet hook belonged to my 
paternal grandmother...

Its been 16 years since she passed
And I still miss her..

But this, made me smile

What do you do when you are sad?
Have you kept things that
belonged to your loved ones?

You know, ever since I started making
jewelry, I never pushed myself very much..
I really thought that the fact I had been
100% self taught was a great challenge
by itself....

I began with simple wrapping...
then tried some more intricate wire wrapping..
and then I was fascinated with metals and fire..

But I never really challenged myself..
I never had the patience or the confidence I 
could make something outside my safety zone.
I never really tried my limits.
Don't get me wrong here.
I m really proud of what I have accomplished
so far..
But truth be told..I was afraid of failure.
I hate anything for that matter.
I have always been someone who 
would only try at anything with
a really low percentage of failure.

It seems I had forgotten that the most
important thing, is trying...
That, the best part is the journey..
And not the destination

With this pendant, I pushed myself.
It's been on my mind the last few months
but didn't have the guts to try it.
This time I did.
And I made it.
And I enjoyed every minute of this journey.
..the destination was lovely as well ;)
