I don’t want to hog Mother Earths semi-precious jewels. I’d much rather make earthy vibe accessories with them. Pass them on, in finished form, to new clients with appreciation of their expressive worth.
Going along with my current plan to have three glorious studio days every week, I also want to challenge myself to utilize many of these beads by years end. Gentle reminder there's only 3 months left - and we either make the time, or we loose it.
