Healthy Jewelry?

A few weeks ago I was on one of my favorite blogs Make Bracelets! by Tjstatler and I am so excited! She always has great ideas over there, she is very well spoken and very talented and she does these great blog hops! Actually, after finding her blog last year, I finally got enough courage to try some different styles of jewelry making, she makes beautiful things! Anyway, she is putting on a blog hop that will be published on Feb 2 and I am so very excited to be participating! Its called
                                                "Inspire Change: Wellness Words Jewelry"
The basis of this challenge is to come up with a meaningful word or phrase that will help you make a healthy change in yourself and your life. You then need to create a piece of jewelry and incorporate your word/words into the design. The purpose is to help you reflect on yourself, find something you would like to improve, and then remember what you find. I gotta tell ya, I have been thinking about this since I read the post the first time ( I think Ive read it 3x now). Aside from the actual challenge, her entire post is inspiring! I have been so inspired and really digging deep to find what this means to me and how it can help me. I think alot of people who are artsy and creative find their favorite medium and to often it becomes a habit. Each project, though it may come from within, may not always have the meaning behind it. I am guilty. I used to bead and make my jewelry with my heart. Every piece had a specific person, event, or special meaning or inspiration behind it. I find myself disliking more and more of my creations, and even the process of making them. Not anymore. I figured out what the problem is thanks to this challenge! Tjstatler, I thank you for that!
So keep your eyes open for that blog hop, the reveal is on Feb 2 and it will be fantastic!
