|Bleeding Heart Necklace Set|
The quickest way to come up with an idea is to stop trying to come up with an idea. At least that is how my muse rolls.
When I sit down with a blank sheet of paper to try to come up with new product ideas, the sheet tends to stay pretty blank. When my mind leaves the task, and I allow my thoughts drift toward something pleasurable, the connections start to appear. This necklace is a perfect example.
My garden is most gorgeous during May and June. One of the things that makes it so gorgeous are the mounds of bleeding hearts that trim out the paths. As I sat admiring one this spring, the flowers started to remind me a of dainty charms dangling from a delicate necklace. A product idea was born.
One rainy afternoon, I played around with sculpting flowers like the ones in my garden. They turned out lovely, but I no idea how I wanted to string them. Mind was blank again. It took several weeks and a trip to my Mom's house to rummage through her bead collection for my muse to return.
It took a while for everything to come to fruition, but this bleeding heart necklace and earring set is now finally listed in my store.
Does your muse show up on command, or is she fickle like mine?
