As "operation declutter" continues, I managed to buy some useful storage boxes and a new waste bin in the sales last week-end (Store Twenty One if you're interested - I got 5 different items for just over a tenner).
There is not only space being cleared in my work area but there is also a system developing, and it feels good.
There is still some clearing to do so I'm not prepared to show my whole work area just yet because there's still more work to be done, but these photos are a little taster ....
But what made me happy was that with a cleared workspace, I was ready to get stuck in and get creative again and this week have started work on some stacked gemstone bracelets.
I don't have a plan with my jewellery making but just go with the colours and patterns I'm drawn to at the time. Interestingly, for the browns/oranges bracelet I used zebra jasper for the first time and it wasn't until I'd finished the bracelet that I looked up the said healing properties of this gemstone and that it is supposed to help overcome apathy, bring motivation and energy and jasper in general is said to help organisational skills - well it does seem I chose the best gemstone for the job!
