When I sit down to create a piece my brain gets lost in this creative storm of ideas. I will be sitting there with several boxes of beads open in front of me and I am suddenly consumed like a child in a candy shop. I am mesmerized by all the shiny things and my brain immediately goes to a creative but blank state. Blank state meaning I go somewhere else. I forgot about all my worries and everything fades. I tell my husband that making jewelry is the best kind of therapy.
