Lesson learned

Late last night I was fiddling around with all of my wonderful beads and kept returning to a beautiful (or at least in my opinion) pineapple quartz pendant that I've had for awhile. I love the swirls of color in this particular piece - it's almost like there is movement inside the pendant. So I set to work and tried various color combinations until - VOILA! - I tried it with some light amethyst purple rounds that I had on hand. The purple and yellow combination totally worked for me.

Crafting different items is like that for me. I love trying various combinations and working with different materials - not just my beloved jewelry but also fabrics, paint - this even carries outside to my flower beds. Every year I gather new plants that I've never had and pop them in my flower garden to see what happens. Sometimes I'm disappointed. But more often than not, a beautiful flower or plant will flaunt it's summer color. The moral of this lesson (for me at least) - keep trying and continue to work with things that you love. Something glorious will always come through!
