Firstly let me apologise for missing the April blog last month. Sometimes stuff just gets in the way.
So this month the Gals over at JAC (http://jewelryartisans.proboards.com/) are blogging about Themed Jewellery. I cannot say I have really had much call for themed jewellery. I think the same as most people I guess, white and sparkly for weddings, orange and black for Halloween, reds and greens for Christmas, then of course you have star signs and holidays and…….well the list is endless.
Well be that as it may I can really only offer one themed piece that I have ever been asked to make and that was a pennant to celebrate a wedding.
I suppose I don’t really find great inspiration in working on themed pieces as I think I find them too restrictive. If beading where my livelihood then it would be a different story as the themed pieces would probably be what sells I imagine but as I do this for fun and personal satisfaction I don’t really see the need to get bogged down in the themed stuff. Having said that if I am asked to make a specific piece for someone I know I will say yes as I get to see the reaction of handing over a finished piece. I am sure the other bloggers whose links I will add below will have all sorts of differing views on this and that is what makes group blogging fun. Until next month when the topic will be anybodies guess I would like to leave you with a small thought.
Here are the blogs from the other participants.
