OOAK Jewelry creations from vintage and broken pieces (even if I use a pattern, they are never the same)!
Starting doing beading in @1995 after getting alcohol poisoning while out partying with friends. It is a talent that God gave me to keep me from trying to kill myself (literally through binge drinking and then driving while drunk) From broken to Reborn, from lost to Found, God gave me this talent to make jewelry and I didn't realize how relevant it was to my life until I was listening to the radio praising God and this song came on (of course I forgot the name and such) but it talked about taking the old and making it new again. God did that with me as I do that with my jewelry! I love taking old broken pieces and recreating something new and exciting. If the necklace doesn't have earrings with it, I can make some to go with it. Romans 7:24 O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of death. vs 25 I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. It only through Jesus can we be truly changed, He alone has all power to deliver us from the bondage of sin and give us new life.
I have finally gotten my design mojo, power, etc. back and it is flowing pretty well! I have made two bracelets for the Global Gene Project - that means only 18 more to go this month ( My goal is 20 to send this month to help reach the goal of 7000). I am also trying my hand at some organic medium with some real moths and butterflies, leaves, flowers, etc. that I have laying around (the insects were dead). I will post pictures later today or tomorrow! :)
Today is clean up at work day - Cleaning out files that are no longer usefully or up to date. I think we have files in the office that date back to 1950 or 60 even. It is a hoarder's paradise. It isn't just piled every where -well at least some of it. It is in file cabinets, with neatly labeled folders. I am just tired of having to look through all of it to find what I really need. On top of that, I have an EHC leader training meeting at 1 pm and then will leave for Lepanto to hopefully start a new EHC club through a group that wants to learn Line Dancing. I am excited because I miss dancing and this will be good for me (I hope)! Anyway - Back to cleaning up the office and recycling paper!
