Back to my roots

cirque 3

I’ve been feeling very frustrated with my jewelry designs lately, so I thought I would try beading again.  When I was pregnant with my daughter,  I developed horrific carpal tunnel.  I couldn’t even feel my fingertips!  The most difficult thing in the world to do was to hold a thin beading needle between my numb fingers so I just stopped, cold turkey.  I hadn’t  tried to bead until now, two years after Delilah’s birth. 

I reconnected with why I had loved it in the first place.  Beading takes me to my happy place.  It’s incredibly therapeutic and calming for me. 

Hopefully this is a sign of greater works to come.  Stay tuned…..
