Redesigning Old Jewelry
One of the issues of working at home, is staying motivated. I am in the process of writing a new book on recycling or actually redesigning used and vintage jewelry. I worked on a design team for several years, surrounded by creative people. It was always so nice to get instant feedback on an idea. Working alone means I have to keep myself continually refreshed with visual input. Using the internet helps with some of that. Creativity knows no boundaries. And unfortunately it can come and go with bad weather, lack of sleep, family drama and any other thing that can take attention and focus from the work at hand. Wish me luck as I continue to plow through my project. Here is a pile of jewelry that I am sorting through for pieces that I can remake. I may be in over my head, I guess we will see.
