A great surprise for me this past December was discovering a creative talent in a fellow Pickleball player when he showed me pictures via his phone, of some necklaces he had crafted out of recycled ‘bits’, stones and beads etc, that he’d picked up. Using silver wire as the link to pull it all together which he carefully twisted into tiny designs of loops he managed to create some lovely jewelry.
While admiring his craft my mind looped over to my home jewelry box which contained an unused pearl necklace so I pondered out loud and drew him into my visual idea of creating two bracelets. I gave him a couple of ideas and being the artist creative type that he is, he agreed to try out the project.
The next time I saw my friend my pearl necklace was handed over and off he went. I thought it may take weeks to put the bracelets together but within 24 hours I was shown one of the designed pieces, complete with a Turquoise stone he had laying around in his supply stash of jewels. Within a couple more days I had both bracelets in hand.
These bracelets became two surprise gifts in Christmas stockings – something special for two special ladies in my family.
If anyone is interested in having a jewelry piece created or redesigned please respond via this blog and I will pass on your name and contact info to my friend who has given me permission to post this blog.
Logistics of location, postage, etc…will have to be decided upon between artist and purchaser. I’m a writer, not usually considered a salesperson, however, the above picture may lure you in as my friend’s phone photo of his handiwork stirred up my own artistic mind.
