As I was discussing the changing of paths and new directions, and the feeling of lack of focus it creates- I was inspired to go to my book Inspiritu; Jewelry for the mind-body and soul. I looked up my Focus piece and decided to play around with the focus necklace and came up with bead chains. I gathered my old beads and like knitting, I wire wrapped each bead into a 48″ necklace that can be worn long, doubled or tripled. They can also be used as empowering beads where I use a bead at a time to state a power word or empowering thought one bead at a time to rob the negative mind its torture…Hope you like them…Have a great day. I would love to hear if you made a bead chain as well, and if you do please post a picture.

I went to my book -Inspritu; Jewelry for the mind-body and soul and took my own advise and am making another focus necklace…..Just the repetition of wire wrapping or stringing beads help the mind to focus, and with this necklace I put a charm on the end sort of like a pendulum so that I can ask it questions….If you don’t have the book you can knit, string beads asking for guidance, or any other repetitive sort of craft and as you complete each round you ask a new questions…good luck. I am going to start wire wrapping now…

It is funny how life delivers you segments of life. For instance from age 20-35 I worked in the fashion industry and as a designer, model, and in sales. Then I made a change dabbling in different industries in sales, marketing and really just about any job I thought sounded interesting to see if I would like to make a career out of it, and along the way I had my next career which was being a mom. That career has been so satisfying and I have loved every moment of it. While being a mom I still dabbled trying to make money here and there. I was lucky to have been able to be an art teacher,a sub, wrote a book, and taught workshops, gave outdoor jeep tours, worked at an outdoor store, and checked backgrounds of employees….
But now a new chapter is unfolding..I can feel it in my bones. I am trying out new hats as they say trying to see where this next chapter will lead…but with no paths have seemed to open up. DO I just wait and see what unfolds or do I actively pursue avenues? I know I will still be a mom first but the kids seem to need me less and I feel a pull to add-on more responsibilities. But which and what avenue?
