|Mother's Cool Necklace|
|Matched my red suit!|
|Macrame! And this was Mom's too!!|
When I was working as an interior designer, my jewelry was usually ethnic .Since I lived in the Southwest part of that time, I learned Navajo weaving and was enamored with American Indian silver and turquoise. My dad and brothers also had mined ‘Mojave Stone’ in the Mojave Desert and local Missouri silversmith’s made one of a kind pieces for him that I claimed! In fact, when I went back to visit the family, my mother always threatened to go through my suitcase to see what jewelry was leaving her collection! I always liked what she wore.
Now that I have retired as an interior designer and am making my own jewelry, I usually wear something I’ve made. The funny thing is that I often forget to put any jewelry on and have to go back and accessorize. I like the process of designing and making. And I understand the value of test driving the pieces by wearing them. I also like showing them to anyone interested! Check out my etsy store to see some: www.etsy.com/lindabrittdesign
I'd love to hear how you have changed in your selections of jewelry and why! Please share.
