More than Jewelry

If you would have asked me years ago if I thought that I would be making jewelry, my answer would have been no. I don't even know how I got into jewelry making, but now find that I am coming into my own on that front.

If you have met me in the last few years you would think that I just make jewerly, and that could be the furthest from the truth. The truth is, I like to use a multitude of mediums. I like to use whatever material is going to get my thoughts across to others. That medium may be a pencil, pen, paint, via camera, sand, rice, trash...pretty much anything that you could think of.

So today's creative thought comes from a card that I made for a friend that is doing the Susan G. Komen 3 day walk. I decided to actually make the card instead of buying one, and this is what I came up with. Of course I used a sneaker because she will be walking, and I used the color pink because of the cancer walk. I doubled up on some string to make the shoe-laces, and a silver pen to do a bit of details.

The card coming out of its envelope

I thought she would like a fun envelope, so I made that too!

That's it for this evening everyone! I pray that you have a wonderful evening and look forward to more creations tomorrow!!!
