Funny how sometimes while trying to do something new I find myself at a loss for even the most simplist of ideas or direction.
I have an idea of what I want to create but then when I undertake the task of trying those ideas out; I sit there in a daze.
Recently my daughters suggested that I should try to make something more appealing to the younger generation.
Ok, so I sat down this past weekend and pulled out some lovely lentil beads. I put them together in an symetrical pattern and decided that I wanted to give it a youthful appeal. I loved the way the colors came together but thought they were just a little bright so I attached them to black suede cording to tone it down a bit.
The necklace came together well, and I actually finised it in one day. Not a common thing in my hectic world.
I wore it to my grandson's birthday party! I really did not expect the reaction I got. One of my daughters, who can be pretty blunt. Told me that the necklace looked pretty cheap.
Wow what a shocker! Really?
I thought the colors were bright and spring like. I posted it on one of the groups I belong to on Facebook for a feedback from my peers. After several suggestions I will be reworking this piece after all...
Oh Well back to the drawing board!
Maybe I need to re-adjust my ideas of what the younger generation likes?
