Art Jewelry Elements Component of the Month Reveal - Sort of.

This month the AJE contributor was Jenny Davies-Reazor.  Here is what she created for us.

Now first let me apologize for this not only being a late post but also a work in progress post as well.  The lateness was due to a computer issue that has me frazzled a bit.  The second is...well I love each and every one of the components I receive from each of the amazing artists in the AJE team but this time Jenny went out of her way with choosing a very special word for each of us.  With that said I was having a hard time deciding what I wanted to do.  I would like you to read her post on how she created each of these for us here.

This is my component. 

I know I should have taken a picture of it before I started working with it but that part came easily.

direct one's hopes or ambitions toward achieving something.

I know that she choose this word for me but I am not sure she realizes how important it has become to me.  I have been needing to "direct my hopes" for a while now and this is something I need a daily reminder of.  I need to truly aspire to be true to myself and how I go further in my beading art.  I have been aspiring to create pieces that are not me and that has been hampering my creativity for some time.  By receiving this amazing component made just for me with Jenny's amazing energy  I have a new drive to create my way.

So with that said I wanted to make something that would be with me on a daily basis.  I really have the need to keep looking at this one everyday so with that said I have made the decision to create a refrigerator magnet.  I am still working on the perfect edging (which I have ripped out 3 times so far) and then I will reveal the finished project.

Please go see what everyone else created

What do you aspire to do?


  1. I am so glad that it spoke to you - that was what I intended... I think the idea of something you can see everyday is perfect - and I can't wait to see it finished!

    1. Thank you I really love it. I know it is out of the ordinary.

  2. I know it will be lovely when finished, Kristen! I'm so excited to hear you're aspiring to create pieces that truly are you—I sure know what it is to make things that aren't quite what I love. I've made it my goal for the past few years to only make what I love… and have most certainly enjoyed working with that in mind! So much so, that when it comes to my new jewelry I can't bring myself to part with it. Bad me. LOL You go girl!!!

  3. Can't wait to see where you go woth this Kristen.
