Yep, I Make My Own Jewelry

Sometimes I take breaks from sketching and make my own jewelry. I like to bead and I like to wire wrap. I avoid most techniques which involve heat (because I don't like the smells and I don't want to wear out my eyes—even with protection I'm worried about torches causing cataracts). But that still leaves my whimsy a lot of leeway.

I got the best comments from the 5- to 10-year-old group when I wore this at various times in the last two months of 2010.

Exercise your whimsy today. Make something, paint something, sketch something that reflects who you are.

    Davyne, Phyl, Alex, thank you all. I’m glad you enjoyed this piece. You should see the toy airplane necklace I made years ago!!!! I loved that necklace, but it’s gone missing.

    Miss T, glad you enjoy it. It has one other feature that I neglected to mention. It’s very,very light, and I like my jewelry that way!

    I make my own jewelry, too. It is a wonderfully fun thing to do. I really like the things you are doing. I see why the kids loved the piece you wrote about.
