Adopting New Ways

Stepping out of my comfort zone has never been my forte'. I will be the first to admit that although I am working on relinquishing control, I like to take the reigns more often than not. But as I read a great book by the name of "Boy Meets Girl" by Joshua Harris, I decided to put adopting new ways into practice today.

I won't get into details, but today I recognized that there may have been areas that I was wrong, and areas I am willing to take some slack for where I wasn't. The bottom line is, I am in the business of doing what I need to do to make things right in the eyes of my Maker.

With my brief thought of the day out of the way, a necklace was in the workings this evening. It is brass with serpentine nuggets. The parts come from a broken belt, and a few necklaces. While I was creating it I had an ideal of a woman in the Tudor period in my mind. They often wore heavy, and gaudy jewelry...somewhat like what is in fashion today.

It's chandelier style!
Mom modeling! She gets tired of doing it, but anything for her daughter!

Stay tuned for tomorrows creative conquest!
