Let Your Jewelry Have a Voice

Your jewelry does have a voice. Sometimes a single word in written form on a charm or stamp can help make your jewelry even more meaningful and expressive to yourself or admirers.

If you have ever wondered how you can be more expressive with your jewelry?  Jewelry has potential to speak to us as we assign merit to it.  We just have to have an open mind when knowing what meaning we want to associate with it, or access to it.

As a creator of  jewelry art and a bead maker, the items that I design and create are initially made from sparks of inspiration and the desire and need to make art with meaning, purpose and expressive in making a statement.

Turning items into meaningful keepsakes are important.  With the need to create with a specific theme or feel, the jewelry piece takes on an additional valuable aspect.  It is a great service to be able to create and preserve memories or convey a message in a wearable hand-made item. Think about assigning a word charm to art to convey a particular or personalized meaning to it.

When I consider making a one-of-a-kind keepsake item, I automatically listen to an inner story that has a need to be conveyed.  It is important to add a little something extra to convey a particular message upon first glance.  It is important to share a personal connection with your jewelry and listen to the voice it can share. Doing so can be as subtle as incorporating a single written word into the actual art creation.

In the photos of hand-made jewelry art below, a stamped word in ceramic base does the trick.

 

Your jewelry can "speak" to you when it incorporates the written word.

The message can be subtle or bold.  The obvious way to do this is with the written word.  The easiest way to incorporate meaning into art is to use wording. In the first photo in this post, the word “happy” is found in the ceramic attachment. You associate the word as a “title” and gain meaning from that.

Conveying what you want to express is important to the design.  There doesn’t have to be a special occasion to wear keepsake art however, there should be a meaning connected to it.  After all, it is what makes it extra special, right?

Do you allow your jewelry to speak for itself and have the last word? What would be a positive affirmative word that you would like to see in the jewelry you most wear?

Sometimes a single word can bring meaning to your piece.
