On a bender

This is truly a blessing to have the time to see if creative juices will flow after all the years that I have spent doing basically non-creative work.   Don’t get me wrong, I was creative in how I approached my work, but the work itself was pretty straight forward in needs and requirements.

The last few days I have been reading a lot about making wire jewelry and I have been shopping for supplies.  I love going to buy the wires and beads that I want to use because I’m like a kid in a candy store.  Everything looks so good and new ideas for different pieces I want to make are popping up in my head faster than I can keep up with.  I’ve been watching a lot of YouTube videos as part of my education and inspiration.  Thank you to all the ladies who put their work out there to help those of us just starting out.

When I’m “on a bender” as I like to call it–aka bending wire–I lose all track of space and time–food gets burnt, house doesn’t get cleaned, the cat has to watch t.v. alone, husband is on his own.  There is something so stimulating and satisfying about bending and weaving the wire and beads into something pretty.  It’s almost orgasmic.  Egyptian
