Make More Than One…

asparagus.jpgI will admit that there have been times when I have regretted making “More” before fully exploring the ramifications of a design. Like the time I set out to make fifty chocolate necklaces…I made fifty each of twenty five different beads = 350 beads sorted into small sandwich bags. It wasn’t until I went to string the first necklace that I realized that the holes in the dark chocolate cherries were in the wrong place, the scale of the caramels looked off and I definitely needed more bling!

However, the next time you set out on a project, consider making more…twelve donut beads instead of one, six collage brooches instead of two or three complete necklaces instead of one. There is something magical that happens when you get into the rhythm of  the process, the what if?  idea mindset takes hold, the construction challenges may lessen and “more than one” helps remove the onus and preciousness of “just” one.
