A Girl can Change Her Mind, right?

by Staci L. Smith

 
I got to spend a little time with some metal and cabs this week.  I made time actually, because I was so inspired by Joy Kruse in the Summer Edition of Belle Armoire Jewelry (both Stacie Florer and myself are in this issue).  It's an amazing issue, and I was really drawn to Joy's jewelry in it.  She bezels rustic stones and uses lots of little add ons as texture.  Since my very first bezel, I have added little things to the side, because it was too plain, but OH MY she takes it to an entirely different level.
 
So I sat down and made this.
 
 
 
 
And I loved it.
 
 
 
 
And I was proud of it.
 
 
 
And I posted it on facebook.  And I no longer liked it.  As I saw it in front of me, there was something that just wasn't setting right with me.  The piece just wasn't quite "staci" enough.
 
Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm................
 
So I turned it sideways. 
 
 
And added some rustic stones.
 
Ahhhhhhh.  Now I love it.
 
 
 
See, a girl can change her mind!
