This big thought came to the fore front of my mind when a necklace that I made began to reshape and turn into another design. The SciFi folks call this shape shifting. The art folks call it creative. It looks to me like a creative idea can continue to evolve and re-create perhaps endlessly. I find it fascinating. I want to explore this creative evolution even further.
Since I didn't have bead caps, twisted jump rings or headpins in bronze I had to make them from my wire. I changed the fresh water pearl to a happy rondel crystal. What a difference! Even though the 2 necklaces are similar, there is a distinct and unique personality to each of these necklaces.
Now my mind wants me to go forward and tweak this design again. I feel strongly that the back of the necklace should be changed from wire wrapped crystals to a chain or cording. The creative process of this one design keeps evolving. I have a wonderful and satisfying sense about this process. I'm wondering how far I can evolve this one design and can I continue this creative process with other designs?
