Return of the mojo?!

I have been lacking recently in what I always refer to as my “mojo”. I would sit and ponder how to make and create, and couldn’t find my creative side anywhere! Frustrating when you have orders to fulfil, and a desk covered in beads, buttons and various other jewellery making paraphernalia!

I could easily blame sleep deprivation (a one year old who does not sleep at all well, does wonders for making you lose your creative energy!), and various ailments, (cold after cold…)

Anyway, yesterday I wasn’t feeling very well, but I was given some time to myself, and when my headache started to subside a little in the afternoon, I found myself sitting creating finally! I managed to finally finish off two custom orders that I had started and put aside, and felt much more inspired again finally!

These two particular items were designed to complement a pretty top (I had been sent a photograph to work from). Tentatively, I sent the customer links to the photos and she luckily she loves them! 🙂 Below is the bracelet…

I also finished another bracelet, loosely based on the “Jardin d’Eliza” bracelet I had previously made. Another custom order entitled “Enchantment” – I hope she likes it! 😉

Next up, I set about working on an idea I had recently, using bright funky buttons, and beads, in a more simple design, less “clustery” than my usual bracelets, but I am thrilled with it! This piece is “Disco Buttons” 🙂

AND… I listed a couple of pairs of earrings to my Pollyorange Creations facebook fan page store today and sold them BOTH within a matter of minutes! (and I have a few more potential orders in the pipeline too!)

So, all in all a good day I think, and I feel inspired again finally! 🙂
