Making Beautiful

No matter what anyone says, in my eyes I will never be beautiful. My low self esteem and embarrassment about the way I look has taken years to manifest itself so I know it will take a long time to 'get over myself', but just because I do not see me as looking beautiful (or even average) I see beauty in others and the things around me.  With this in mind instead of concentrating on trying to look beautiful I am putting my efforts into making beautiful!

I've made the bracelet above using gemstones that were aesthetically pleasing to me.  I like the coldness of the stones and the way that the colours work together.  When I am making jewellery I am totally absorbed in the process.  I like to think that a little bit of my soul is infused in my work.  I would imagine that many creators feel that way too.

I'm sure creators of beautiful things put their heart and soul into their creations. Have a wonderful Easter, Simone:)

It sounds like you need to make more jewelry, Simone!

Advertising places much too much importance on beauty, Simone, but in real life, most good and interesting people are average looking and could care less. The photo of yourself which you put on your blog a while back showed a very pretty lady. You need to stop beating yourself up. xxx

I honestly do believe that beauty comes from within.... In the heart,in the soul and in the creative mind. You show beauty in abundance. X
