Following My Own Path

Several years ago my best friend and I tried to open a jewelry business together. Sadly it didn't work out and even more sad the friendship could not endure the dissolution of the business either. Since then I feel like I have been struggling with finding my own identity. Through exploration of crafts I feel I am starting to find my own voice. From my tree designs to my wrapped pendants and even my earrings, my voice is coming out through my work.

 

There is just one problem I keep circling back to and that is my prayer / meditation / worry beads. I don't even know what to call them at this point. I have not gotten a great reception on them as far as selling goes and honestly they are one of my least liked items. This item however is what got me started beading. I have made so many that I have given to friends and relatives. But it is also the last thing that is left over from my old partnership and I feel it is time to move on.

Therefore, I will be removing all of my prayer beads from my store and moving on to something I feel is much more me and will have MY stamp on it. I am going to stick to my witchy roots and make witches ladders instead :-). 

I am really excited about this prospect and have been mulling it over for quite sometime. I love that I will have more creative freedom with design. I will be designing 9 bead, 13 bead and 40 bead strands. Prices will range from 20 to 50 dollars giving people a lot more choices. 

So CHEERS!!! Here is to the beginning of my true path and I couldn't be happier or feel free-er than I do right at this moment :-).

Love, Light, and Creative Blessings,
Tracy
