It is handmade...it is art...it is raw and perfectly flawed!
New work from my studio awaits final touches. Watch for new work to emerge in my online store and at J.J. Jax Gift Shop for local collectors.
You know it takes several days to produce just one of these beautiful little treasures? All my jewelry, paintings, prints and graphic designs are made with the utmost care. If I am not totally satisfied with a piece, I either fix it or start over. Perfectionism you say... maybe...a desire to make high quality pieces as well. I don't like my name on something unless it meets my standards. In the past, I have had deadlines that have caused me to put out things that I otherwise would NEVER release! It is not a good feeling letting go of something you feel is not "finished" in your mind. Of course, most times it always works out for the best. It has helped me grow and learn what really needs the extra attention and what can move on and withstand the rawness of it. It is handmade...it is art...it is raw and perfectly flawed!
Lately, I have been slowing down a bit and taking that "perfecting" moment with my work. I am developing and offering a wider variety of fun, whimsical pieces as well as more sophisticated beaded creations to choose from. I am enjoying all the new designs that are sprouting from this new found creative peace. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!
Off to have more Life Visions to share with you....Denice
