I've spent the past fews days watching far too much news footage. Unable to tear myself away from the unfolding situation in Japan. But today, it got too much. I realised I needed to turn the tv off. Watching people suffering wasn't helping anyone. So I decided to take a break and do something restful.
I know that probably sounds heartless. I have the luxury of being able to turn the tv off, while people living in Japan have to continue enduring the hardships they are experiencing. But I realised that watching the endless footage wasn't changing anything. All it was doing was filling my home and me with sadness. And that wasn't helping anyone anywhere.
I dug out some pieces of jewellery I had recently made and took some pictures of them in the light, and with flowers. To remind myself that creativity is powerful, and making things is a positive and life-affirming thing to do with my days.
I love honking great rings, and so recently decided to make The Mother Of All Honking Great Rings...
When it comes to jewellery... Sometimes more is more.
I hope you are having a bobby-dazzler of a week, and I'm sending love wherever you are.
