For example, here's a picture of a wire wrapped ring I made last Saturday. It looks OK, but not something that I would sale.
Keeping it for myself.
I think that I could try the design one more time, but make some improvements on the design. Next time, I'll plan the wrapping first, and then execute the design. I usually jump in without thinking about what I'm doing.
I made another ring as well. I'm still not sure how I feel about it. It has an earthy, and organic look to it. Me and my boyfriend call it the 'borg' ring. It just looks kind of sci-fi, cyberpunk/steampunk.
I just don't know how to feel about it.
Last, there are these pearl and jade hoop earrings I made. I love them, but no one else does. I think they're so cute. I'm just going to keep them for myself.
I like the gold, white and purple together.
Cute, on me!
So, here's my list of failures. Feel free to share your own stories about failure. How did you finally get over it? I would love to hear them and get your advice!

If you are a fan of the series you will love the jewelry that's inspired by it.
I'm off to read "New Moon"! I'm so glad that the new book comes out on Saturday. I'll have week to read the whole series.

A page from my journal. I remember being so excited when I got my tongue pierced (I was 19). I couldn't keep my tongue in my mouth. Now, I've gotten over it. Pen, ink, graphite and watercolors.
I love cherries. Painted using acrylics.
Random girl portrait with watercolors. This is a page from an old journal.
Gourd sketch with color study.

I stumbled across this shop on etsy. All I can say is "I wish I had thought of it." Now, a woman doesn't have to feel embarrased about carrying condoms around; they can be concealed in those little carrying cases! The prices are about 3.50 apiece, so get one while you can.
A Break in Flight

When I made this necklace my goal was to create something that would be perfect a woman's summer wardrobe. Here it is.
This necklace is my newest creation, and can be found on www.etsy.com, as always.
The chains are silver plated, and so is the toggle clasp. The beads are frosted glass flowers. So cute! The length of this necklace is 20 inches (minus the toggle clasp) and the pendant measures 1 1/4 in x 1 1/2 ( at the widest point).

Her jewelry has been making me jealous ever since I joined Etsy. You should really check out her jewelry and artwork @ here.
I am inspired whenever I see her work.
