In case you haven’t yet noticed, but I do hope you have, Idyll Hands is officially on vacation. Today I collected all of the necklaces that I’m pretty sure I won’t put back in the shop and took them apart. I saved the chain and beads, and tossed gnarled wire, findings with kinks, pieces of turned metal, and broken pieces. Some of the necklaces have sat in bags for over a year because I decided long ago that I was finished with them.
Now I need to think… I need to find some creativity, reach out to the jewelry Gods and hope that they grant me grand designs. I just need to come up with something. I’ve got about 978 ideas in my head, but only want to work on a few. I want my “new” Idyll Hands to be a blend of my old style but with some new sprucing up. Oh, you remember me talking about this almost a year ago? Well, I changed it then and I can change it again. That is one of the many pleasures when it comes to running your own business. You can do whatever you want.
I did sit in front of my newly cleaned and organized work space, pliers in hand, bead boxes piled high, and eyes glazed over for about 2 hours today. It wasn’t coming to me. So instead I made marinara sauce. At least that turned out with a finished product.
I’ll try the jewelry thing again tomorrow.
