Meanwhile, I’ve been sticking to my challenge of wearing every single piece of beaded jewelry in my stash. I haven’t been moving through them quite as quickly as before. Back in January I wasn’t wearing a uniform to work every day, so I had many more opportunities to layer on multiple designs. Lately I’ve been sticking to just one necklace or bracelet, with the occasional combination.
One of my favorite combos of late was an embroidered medallion which I paired with two cuff bracelets in similar palettes. I’ve nearly worked through all of my favorite pieces and I’m now finding it more difficult to choose designs that I want to wear. I want to say that I had more time to pick pieces to complement my outfits back in January, but I think it’s more likely that I just need more time to decide on which of the remaining pieces I actually want to wear.
My out-box of worn jewelry is starting to overflow now. I’ll be moving these pieces to a new container to wait until the challenge is complete and I can reorganize my wardrobe. On the plus side, this challenge has provided yet another opportunity to stress-test my designs. It's always nice to see how well they hold up when I treat them with the opposite of proper jewelry care - like stuffing them into a tiny shoe box at random.
How are your creative goals going so far? What’s been your biggest challenge this year?
