Trying to make some jewelry from the paper I dyed yesterday. Finding I don’t give a shit about it today. It’s boring and I hate it. No one will like it, there nothing going for it. It’s colorful but not fun and it won’t go with anything or signify anything to anyone. When surrounded by signifiers it will be overlooked. Maybe I should draw Pokémon characters on it or something. Update: Tossed the idea I was working with, resurrecting one of my halfway-explored ideas from years ago. At least it’ll be a different look. A lot of fancy jewelry now is just hung on simple cotton cord and I’d like to do that but am not sure how to make the clasp nice. They never show pics of the closure in their photos and so I don’t know how to do mine. *sigh* Update 2: Can’t remember why I ever decided I must use resin instead of just varnish. It makes it stronger, sure, but it’s a lot more work and does it really add value? Trying to decide if I care this time.
