Writer's Workshop


Mama Kat does a weekly writers workshop where she provides a prompt and all the bloggers in bloggy-land write about it. I have never participated, but thought I would this week. Why not! The prompt I chose:
What do you love to create?

My gut reaction and instant answer is jewelry. I know most of you are aware of my hobby/business, but I really love it! I love putting together all the pretty beads, crystal, pearls, etc and turn it into a beautiful, wearable piece of art. I've never been able to draw, paint or do other "arty" things, so this is really fun for me. I also love learning new techniques. I get excited when I find a new method or tip online or in a book. Then I want to run right home and try it.

I love that with the same basic supplies you can create such an infinite variety of fun accessories. For those of you with a shoe or bag obsession (also me), you understand the high that comes with finding a great new pair. The excitement that comes when you realize a new outfit to pair them with. I feel similar to making jewelry. I get such a thrill when I can create something new, something to make a woman look beautifully feminine and sparkly. Making jewelry for me is like putting on that outfit that you know makes you look hot. That little bit of haughty smugness for knowing you are going to turn heads and that you deserve it.

If you haven't checked out my lovely creations, please visit now at jessicastrongdesign.com. I'd love to hear your thoughts!
