A friend of mine has encouraged me to show my creative side.
There is a lot more to me than just being depressed and my inability to eat! I paint, I draw, I make stuff with my hands and I make jewelry. And I have been doing so for many many years. It is as much part of me as depression is. I have recently taken a break from all of these hobbies because I have not been inspired. And yes, I am fully aware that this might have something to do with this deep depression I am in. So I have been going through my pictures from my jewelry and I will post some here for you.
When I make jewelry I usually make them big, noticeable. Almost tribal. I love color, I love stones and wood and bone. My inspiration comes from everywhere. All around me. The feeling I get when I am working on something…. God, I miss that feeling. Total concentration, like nothing else in the world matters. It is me focusing on the stones in front of me, thanking God for the talent He gave me. I can work for weeks on one specific piece until I get it absolutely right.
I have really tried to keep this blog in black & white but I can not show you jewelry without showing you color. You can not show a painting in black & white either. These are a few necklaces and then a few bracelets and earrings.
