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.
