Sometimes I am a very "pearly" person, rather conservative and traditional. I love wearing pearls at certain times and they make me feel mature and confident.
At other times, all I want or need is crystals! I NEED to sparkle! Sometimes I am feeling sparkly inside and other times, I need to feel a little more sparkly. These are both occassions to bring out the crystals.
I have been known to get very weary of being mature and following routines day in and day out, I can always tell when I'm ready for a fun, crafty break. I tend to want to make jewelry craft projects and incorporate paper, found objects or scrapbooking findings into jewelry for one of a kind, often silly, results.
Today's photo is an example of a pair of paper earrings I made with paper punches! :)
When making jewelry for others, I like to think about the person and the reason they might have for wearing it and go with my intuition for making them something unique and special.
How about you? Do you think beads look like people? Are there certain techniques or materials that have certain people written all over them?
