Jewelry Making is Fun and Creative When I'm Organized

Colorful buttons used to make handmade barrings, bracelets and necklacesFor original jewelry making I buy colorful beads, buttons and charms. Finding pretty and unique beads, buttons, charms, chain and findings for my handmade jewelry designs takes time, but I love getting new jewelry supplies for my drop earring, charm bracelet and chunky necklace designs.

Part of the enjoyment of creating earrings, bracelets and necklaces is receiving new bead and button choices for inspiration. The textures and variations in color of my new jewelry components are an expanded pallet of choice.

Being organized doesn’t hold me back in jewelry design, it helps me be creative when I know where everything is and can get it at a moments notice without breaking the momentum. If you know what you have available, it opens up the creative process and you can tick off all the options in your mind. When I’m messy I feel out of sorts and weighed down.

It’s also good to be organized in my jewelry studio so I can put everything away fast and start with a clean slate the next day. It helps the creative process if I don’t have my jewelry lying about all the time when I’m not working on it, that’s not a real break.
