I'm using words from an old, shabby book, clipping out sentences that look interesting or suggestive, that spark ideas.
I made up for myself some 'guidelines' - not really rules, just suggestions to self - about how to use the words. The idea is to take words organized by someone else to tell their story, and use them to tell another story. I use the words in the order they are on the book page, only using pages with no printing on the reverse side. That means at the beginnings or endings of chapters. And no cutting and rearranging, just using the words in the sentence as they are in the book. It makes it more fun and challenging.
I noticed that the designs were sun shapes, or stars. It looked like it belonged with this little charm design.
I'm going to slip a little copper chain through the loop at the top and just keep it simple, without a lot of beads or other decorations.
I don't usually make theme jewelry for holidays, but doesn't this look like the perfect image for the month of October?
