MMM – Play!

That’s the Mixed Media Monday challenge from Diane this week… Play! She has made a beautiful inspirational piece too – and as she rightly says, it’s very easy to get caught up in technique, perfection and self-criticism, instead of enjoying the creative process for its own sake.

I’m not good at jewellery, hence I prefer the term “wearable art”. It’s my way of saying I can’t make jewellery that is technically lovely, but I can produce small pieces of art that are fun to wear! Here is a pair of earrings I made a couple of days ago, to go with a pendant. I used a pair of acrylic/clear bases, twinchy size and images from The Little Victorians collage sheet.

Thanks to a really lovely friend, who thoughtfully bought me a mini-vice for my birthday, it was a lot easier to put these together, so thank you Debs! 🙂
