I have been very active since the new year in personal growth. I told on myself in order to grow as a person and an artist. I said things like "I haven't been making enough beads", "I haven't practiced skills enough", "I haven't tried", "I haven't put my heart into it", "I haven't really wanted it." Well the truth is, thinking about these things was "doing" them.
Earlier I introduced you to Danielle LaPorte's White Hot Truth. Today's newsletter, "So 7 Chicks Get into a hot tub", talks about moving energy before looking for the results. My favorite passage is "It's not always a doing. It's a new seeing. And people see you back." I've been moving energy, and now I am seeing results as if I'd actually "done" the things I said I wasn't doing enough of, and people ARE seeing me!
For example, all I did was resubmit expired listings in my ETSY shop and on the first day I sold a sculpted stingray bead. In the first week I was featured in a treasury, Orange Ya Tired of Winter's Gray?. Almost daily I have new hearts, new favorite watchers, and new circles that I have been made a part of. I've also started blogging again, for personal as well as professional growth, and people ARE seeing me. As of today I have 3 new followers!
So, along with the moving energy, even though I can't afford to buy the components for a new necklace, I can move some energy and create the necklace virtually. I promised I would use Rings & Things components to build a necklace around my newest favorite lampwork bead.
I found three beautiful end caps, and I've decided on one of them.
I found these beautiful, silver plated filagree rounds for only $17.75 for 12 dozen!!! Now that's affordable and I plan to use them in a major way. Though they are not bicone, it might be possible to flatten the sides into a bicone shape...we'll see. And because I have so many, I might be able to make this a multi strand necklace, which could be quite stunning! These are 10mm rounds and my focal is about 20mm wide, so now I need some complimentary beads between 10 and 20mm wide...hmmm, blue?, white?, silver? bicone?
Yeah, baby, this is fun! And productive and moving energy...results will come on their own, you'll see!
