I have a tendency to work on my jewelry business all throughout my home to make it easier to work on pieces when I am in a certain room. This is a great way to get jewelry projects finished, and spend time with my family, but it can get a bit cluttered after a while. I soon have papers, beads, books and jewelry stacked all over the place, thus losing track of where I am on any given project.
It begins to feel like out-of-control creative chaos.
It’s at this point that I have to stop and get re-organized. I have a designated place for my jewelry work, complete with drawers, tools and lighting. I have found that if I place my jewelry in progress within some soft cloth bags, then I know that these bags contain pieces that I need to finish along with the beads to finish them. It’s a way to contain my creative chaos.
While organizing a piece I am working on, I realized that I could use your help. I have a new piece (on my work table here – red and white with silver wire) that kind of came out of nowhere and would love feedback on your ideas for naming it.
I’ve been using synonyms of the color/elements used and variations on “dreaming” to name my other items. Got ideas on what the name should be? Please add your comment to share.
Last but not least, the excitement of getting to know our newest dreamers on 8 Women Dream, and hearing about their journey is a great inspiration. Welcome ladies and thanks for sharing!
How do you contain your creative chaos?
