We are fast approaching the month of May (the fifth month of the year, wow), and spring has most certainly sprung in my neck of the woods. The days are filled with sunshine, the temperatures are rising and one bloom after another is showing its beauty. It feels like only a few weeks ago it was after the big Christmas rush, but it’s happened again like every year, that we’re almost halfway through the year, just recovering from the last and can already start thinking about the end of the year again. Sometimes it is nice as there are things we look forward to, and the sooner they arrive the better, but other times it can be a little scary as it can be hard to keep up, but we can only do our best and try and enjoy every part that we can.
I personally find spring to be a very beautiful, motivational and inspiring time, especially coming from winter. Nature just seems to be exploding in bloom and life and that is one of the most inspiring things for me and my jewellery making. I find much of my inspiration from nature, in both flowers, animals and plants and find myself to be generally much happier as the sun comes out.
This is also maybe the time where some of us think more about the plans for the rest of the year as we have newly recharged energy after the rush and darkness of winter, which in turn can be a little frustrating as it is hard to know what to do with all these thoughts and ideas. This is where you wish there were more hours in the day and we didn’t have to sleep so we could do it all at once, but unfortunately that isn’t the case, so we just have to deal with the time we are given in the best possible way. I for one am trying to stay on the positive side of things, and avoid the stress factors that this brings with it, and I’m looking forward to bringing you many more designs and updates throughout the year.
