I just finished this intricate pair of chandelier earrings. Although quite lovely, it is not a style I usually have time to work with. All that twisting, measuring, shaping, gemstone color,size, and energy property matching, then wrapping, pinching, and weaving the wire…it’s tedious and time consuming labor!
But taking time to be attentive to those unusual extra details, really pausing in the stillness of the moment while creating, is liberating in so many ways. Our lives are enhanced. The creation of art changes us and circles us around to another new awareness.
Whether it is a drawing, sculpture, jewelry making, or even food preparation, gardening or our day to day chores, being in the moment of creation gives us space to become the most beautiful we can be. And what a fantastic moment to capture, potential actualized through art.
When things are too hectic and busy for us to feel like ourselves, take time out of the ordinary routine. Do something hard and tedious in the name of art. It’ll bring the mind’s attention back to the moment, and enhance our lives in ways unforeseen.
