I was born a perfectionist….
I’m naturally sort of an all or nothing type of person…impatient…my own worst enemy….you know the type. In the past, if I haven’t magically achieved perfection on the first try, I’m the one who quits inexplicably…leaving everyone to scratch their heads and wonder what went wrong. After all, I had so much promise…if I’d only stuck with it.
Well, I’m trying to turn over a new leaf. From now on, I’m going to strive to be the sort of individual who is openly flawed, makes mistakes–sometimes big ones, maybe even is whispered about behind her back–but stays the course. Until now, I’ve been the sort of individual who is openly flawed, makes mistakes–sometimes big ones, definitely is whispered about behind her back–but disappears into the ether.
To that end, this weekend, I have finished my very first real jewelry project! I brought my jeweled vision to fruition. I wrapped very stubborn, less than freely bendable wire, attached jump rings and clasps, kept curse words to a minimum (well, okay, not really), and made myself a pretty decent Twilight Inspired set of jewelry which I fully intend to wear (proudly) to the long awaited premiere of Breaking Dawn, Part 1. 🙂
My wires are not wrapped evenly in all spots & my loops are somewhat differently sized throughout, but here it is…my beautiful, flawed, set of Twilight Inspired necklace, earrings, and somewhat loose anklet…As I say on Facebook sometimes to my small circle of Facebook Friends…Ta-Freakin-Da!
