It wasn't until recently that I, in fact, started wearing my own jewelry on a regular basis. Although I make jewelry and wear jewelry, I tend to find myself returning to favorite standards. It was really interesting to hear the types of jewelry these other two beautiful, yet different, women chose to wear, which had both similarities and disparities from my own choices.
How amazing in it that we live in a world where through our work we can connect on such a visceral level through a solid object to other people?
tiny shot of my journal where I'm recording my intentions for my work.
In the last several weeks, I've been making a conscious effort when I'm in my studio, quietly meditating, putting stamps to clay, hammer to metal, needle to thread, to ponder these very questions.
As I think about these things, I'm embracing this organic change that is coming not only to my design aesthetic but also my evolution as an artist.
The connection between maker and wearer is a strong one. What thoughts do you have on the subject? I'd love to hear your experiences in the comments!
