SJ's June Honey Do List Reveal
Each month, Sarajo of SJ Designs Jewelry shares the amazing image her husband has given her for inspiration. She calls it the Honey Do List. She's usually a wiz with it and makes a ton of designs. While I love having that extra inspiration, I'm lucky if I can eke out a design or two. This month's photo almost stumped me! Almost.
First, I had trouble for some reason finding time to focus on the inspiration. But, when I did, nothing was coming to me. I looked again at the photograph of the intricately carved wooden door a few days ago and was struck by the comedy and tragedy masks. They made me remember the carved stone beads in my stash.
I knew those beads would be perfect in a pair of earrings with a tassel. And, as I thought about all the texture on the door, I contemplated maybe creating a necklace that included embossed and colored tin. Since I knew I was short on time, I decided to go ahead and incorporate the tin idea into the same earrings, making them extra long.
I have to admit that I've had those carved skull beads for AGES (my husband picked them out for a necklace for himself) and was relieved to be able to work them into something that's actually somewhat feminine.
A big thanks as always to Sarajo and Eric for the inspiration. Make sure to head over to SJ Designs Jewelry to check out what awesomeness she's created!
