What would happen if you took another path? Is there a right or wrong path? Where do our choices lead us? Do we think we are travelling in a certain direction, only to find ourselves somewhere else, doing something unexpected? Has the right path ended badly, and has the difficult road lead to unexpected treasure?
Quite a few years ago I found myself on a harsh road and wondered how I got there. I didn’t choose that way at all. I had to cut away the branches and get back to the inner core of my true self. The journey pushed my creativity and reserves of strength and I began making jewellery. The path has led through forests and over mountains and been a source of continuing inspiration to me. And now I realise that I wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for that difficult path.
This collection was inspired by my reflections of this journey.
I’ll be listing these pieces in my Etsy store tomorrow night. They’ll cost a little more than my jewellery usually does, not because I’ve suddenly increased my prices but because the price of sterling silver has increased by such a lot in the last few months. Michele x
