Creativity is the best kept secret. It’s discovered in your mind, made physical, and only given to the world when you’re ready.
For the longest time I was apprehensive about selling my creations. They were that much a part of me, that I didn’t want to share them with the world.
To let another know of or have that piece of me... the part that could find beauty in the imperfect, see all that hidden potential, and then transform its ability to be noticed for just how splendid it really was - that was a bit too sacred.
I have a talent, and to this day, I still have trouble letting people know. I should be shouting from the rooftops, and sharing this creative journey more. I’ve come to realize that.
Sharing is Caring. Creative Secrets:
The other thing I should be sharing is the secret that we are all creative beings. We all have the ability to make wild transformations. Trust your instincts and make your own masterpiece, because that’s how it’s truly made.
This necklace was created from that random resin bead stash. These beads are incredibly imperfect. Not quite the same colour of off-white, and some random colorings within.
By themselves they’d be overlooked, but as a collection with all those sterling silver findings, look at the statement. Such power!
We’re like that too - alone, maybe not feeling so mighty, and pretty different too, but if we take supporting roles, we can become so much greater than ever imagined. Embrace those differences in ourselves and each other - that's our power.
