I was lucky enough this year at the Bead and Button show to meet up with my old friend and sales rep. Terri Principie. Terri used to rep my jewelry back 15 years ago when I had my company LEN.ART COLLECTION. I was based out of Chicago. She was awesome and really understood what my jewelry was about.
She is also a psychologist...so we always have very interesting conversations. One of the subjects that came up was the new color I was wearing. I have took to wearing a deep coral color....which to me , I was quite proud of putting any color into my wardrobe. I think many artists or designers work with so much color that we get tired of it in our day to day life...or that life is simpler for me to just put on a neutral color day after day so I can save my creative force for jewelry/sculpture work. Sink it into that medium instead.
Anyways, I'm immersed in coral color..... I even painted my room a metallic coral.

Terri told me that the color is worn for power, mental clarity and strength. That it is a powerful color. GOOD! She said it is important to wear on your wrist. I am wearing my great grandmothers 40 feet of small coral beads that was given to her on her wedding day. It's nice and smooth and worn...like a good Talismans. It felt good to have these hand cut ancient fossil on my wrist...plus when it is on your wrist (rather than your neck) you get to look at them.
Terri also told me that I did not need the points on my silver bracelets that I often wear....that I will just keep people away. well...there are some people that I am trying to keep away. I may file the weapons down to nubs. Maybe, just maybe I don't need to wear weapons anymore?? I think it's left over from growing up on the south side of Chicago..... should I file?....or should I not?? hmmmmmmmmmmmm

Coral is certainly a colour statement - easy on the eye and rich. Congrats on your new venture and as Ro commented, unfortunately we don't have access in Australia.

love coral...don't file spikes, they are what they are, just make new different bracelets that suit who you are today.

Wow! Very interesting insights! I'll have to check out why I'm drawn to lavender/violet/purple for my shirts the last few years. I'm normally drawn to black.
I think you should file if you are compelled to in future endeavors.

hi. this is unrelated to this post, but i wanted to share something..i saw your WONDERFUL pieces at Michaels. They were running a 2 for $8.00 sale, which was a great deal. But silly me I thought to myself..well my cousins took her class and loved it, maybe I should just look for her class or a book by her. Then later at home I thought to myself..well for that price....so I went back the next day to buy some..and they were almost ALL GONE! SO I wanted to write and say.. Congrats!!! Looks like your product is the newest hot item. I guess I will have to go buy your book and make my own after all :)
