Recently I've been hit with a period of insomnia, which involves me dropping off at about 11 and then waking up at 4. At first it was pretty horrible, but it's the holidays at the moment, and I don't have much of a social life, so nothings really been affected by it. I have a feeling its to do with jewellery, as (without sounding too up myself) I have so many ideas flying through my head before I doze off, I just can't seem to focus on sleep!!
So apart from frantcially scribbling down ideas in the middle of the night, I can now also be found making things in the early hours of the morning. The dog finds it very amusing. Hopefully my sleep deprived state hasn't affected my making too much.
So..... insomnia..... sleep...... night..... STARS!! I've always loved stars. Well they're naturally shiny, so of course I love them!! I think it is a pretty universal thing, as everyone looks up at the same sky and see's the same sparkly, glittery beauty. Recently I have been searching my boxes (and my mums) for stars, moons and anything that vaguely looks like them. And here's the results.
So this bracelet was made at roughly 4:30 am this morning. I'm not sure where all the beads are from, probably from necklaces broken long ago. I quite like this piece as its delicate. I also love the glass beads, which have a beautiful bluey/purpley sheen on them. I think they do just enough to get it noticed on ones arm, but still allows the bracelet to sit there minding its own business, if you understand me. Basically it's not too overstated.
This bracelet is a tad more sophisticated. Whereas the previous one is unique, this one I think would appeal to more people. Again, I have no idea where the star is from, but the happy little moon face was an odd earing kindly donated by good ol' mum. I love the way they just hang side by side, nice and simple.
I'm still obssessed with all things night, so I feel I need a charity shop rampage soon!! Hopefully I'll get some more sleep before then. Until then, I leave you with this, a beautiful song, about one of my biggest inspirations.
