When you make a pair of earrings, the main or largest beads are… Continue reading Making Earrings Is Like Jewelry Haiku
It’s true. I admit it. My creative energy is absolutely the boss of me. After the intense burst of creativity I felt all throughout January, I should have expected to be a little burned out, should have made a lot of notes and then took a break when I first felt creatively blocked.
