The spirituality of celebrating Jesus' birthday is foremost at Christmas, of course. The sharing is the fun part ... Handmade candies, cookies, and gifts ... the wrapping and card writing ... are all a part of the excitement and joy of the holiday season.
The lights and ornaments of the season are my favorite .... maybe the shiny bright things remind me so much of jewelry! The proud Christmas trees wear their holiday finery, and inspire me to create designs that are both natural and 'blingy,' just like them.
The holiday season will soon be over, and it'll be time for change. The decorations will come down, and the house readied for spring. In the same way, my worktable will soon be cleared of winter and holiday jewelry components, and readied for new and fun designs. I'll be participating in a 3-month-long jewelry challenge (really more of a class) to build a new line starting in January. More on that soon, but I think it truly will challenge me in many ways ... good ways. It's exciting and scary at the same time, and I'll bring you all along on the journey as I go!
I and my feline assistant Toby (who fell asleep wearing his holiday best) wish all of our friends a very Merry Christmas from Novegatti Designs!
