Hey everyone, I am back after a long gap.. After 2 whole years we have started with our regular routine and even though we all live in different parts of the world, our way of living has definitely changed.
I spent my free time post my regular teaching job, learning crochet and making artificial jewellery with natural stones and pearls.
I felt making jewellery for myself, family and friends was so therapeutic. I took out the bead necklace and earrings that I stopped wearing due to wear-out on the metal or due to lack of interest in the design and tried to reuse with different patterns or stringing together with different textured beads and pearls.
Jewellery making is a skill and the appreciation that the designer gets, in my observation, is very minimal. Art is not just about the money, it is about showcasing the skills using a medium such as paper or beads; beads can come in varied forms like pearl, natural stone, paper, clay, metal, acrylic and so on. The art of making the jewellery enhances the ability to plan and design according to the prevailing mood and the mindset of the designer. If the requirement is for a family member or for a friend, the designer will analyse the interest in colour, texture and preference to pearls or the natural stone of the person and design the jewellery according to their choice. The finished product reflects the time and effort dedicated by the designer. Kudos to all the designers out there who are making an effort to bring a smile on the person wearing the jewellery 🙂
As I have mentioned in my other posts, I always appreciate handmade products as the effort and the affection are visible no matter the size or texture of the artefact.
Here are some of the jewellery patterns that I enjoyed creating in recent times 🙂
Look forward to your thoughts. Remember, if you’d like to acknowledge the designer in you or someone in your known circles, just go for it and say it out loud – “Keep up the good work”
Waiting to hear your thoughts 🙂
