I love native american style jewelry. I also love pearls. I can't think of a reason why not to enjoy them all at the same time. What if..... this is a question I ask myself often while in my workshop and most often act on that thought. I'm not saying that every idea Iv'e had has been brilliant, but if at first it is not the desired effect, it's time for an evolution to occur. It seems that there are always certain spoken or unspoken rules that dictate the normal standard of how to do just about anything. This can be boring or troublesome to someone who thinks outside the box so I say "walk your own walk and follow your vision, the path less taken isn't always easy but it sure is satisfying sometimes."
