Happy bank holiday Monday my friends. Are you having a relaxing sunny one?
Today I wanted to talk to you all about rings and procrastination. I’m sure you have noticed that I don’t sell rings in my shop. This is mainly because I make one of a kind pieces so there would only be one of each ring, what size would I choose (is this a weak excuse)? I had thought about setting up a customised ring section on my new site where you can choose your style, size and stone/sea glass. What do you think? Would you normally buy rings often? Or rarely? Personally, I do own a lot of rings but I tend to wear pretty much the same rings all the time. So, I wanted to ask you my customers if you would like to see some in my shop.
The first ring I made was a little sterling silver band for my pinkie (never been worn lol), next was a very dramatic flower ring made from fine silver (weighs 22g), then another couple of fine silver stacker like rings…one I wear every autumn with my denim dress (I think it’s because of the amber stones). Anyway, my kids have been asking for years would I make them rings but I’ve really put it off, mostly because their fingers are growing and they wont last very long. However during lockdown, I made them both a sea glass ring with an open band which will allow for growth and then I made myself a sea glass ring (see all rings in the picture). But you know what? I just realised today that the main reason I made those rings was to escape my kids, to escape the bickering and the fighting. Is it wrong of me to be needing a lot of space from them? I do mean a lot. I have finished some pieces that have been on my bench since Feb and I really was avoiding them, I have started my new website which again I was avoiding, I even tidied my studio! It’s only been this morning that I realised the key to stopping all my procrastination is having my kids at home. Is anyone else feeling similar symptoms of lockdown lol….please don’t make me feel alone and share in the comments below!
That’s all for today as I still have to spend the normal three hours printing out the kids school work for the week plus make timetables…..I need to pay better attention to that so I can try and limit the fighting, all ideas welcome.
