Soon my brain was starting to ache .... Luckily, the healing powers of the amethyst seemed to be a tonic for my pounding headache. Encouraged by my sensei(teacher) to draw a blueprint , I started to become focussed on the gems, shapes, colors, sizes and logic of design principles. What a gift .... One thing at a time grasshopper !!!
( right) . I was over the moon,when the local television station host ( above left) came to showcase my creations ... however it did help that I was the only foreigner taking the classes... Tah Dah ... My moment of Japanese Stardom.
No matter how daunting a task may be ... creating with baubles, bangles and beads will definately challenge the creative juices and mind blast you through the trials and tribulations of being a shy crafter.
May I suggest, that you take on the ULTIMATE challenge and wear your artistry with pride. There is great satisfaction in knowing that you DID IT !!!!
