A sudden rush of creativity

Even though I have about 6 boxes and/or trays of projects at some stage of completeness - my brain still manages to pump out more. As I'm sitting among my beads at the shop last week, I had a sudden need to create something with spiral peyote - but after about 6 inches, I got bored with it. So I set it aside, and opened one of my begging to be completed (or started for that matter) projects - and an idea was born. Thanks to all the wonderful Green Girl components that I've been hanging onto for a few months - I KNEW the right projects (or PROJECT) would arise. This creation is called 'The Reflecting Pool'. This piece was completed in just 3 days. I used the spiral peyote piece on one side of the neckpiece, and added embellished spiral rope to the other - another assymetric masterpiece!

Not sure why some projects call to me and come together so quickly, and yet others languish in their boxes for months if not YEARS before completion. None the less - I have already worn it(didn't think I would part this baby, didya?) and had TONS of compliments on it. And I think that's what it's really all about. It's the ego boost. It's the thrill of all eyes on you and your beautiful creation. And the new haircut on Friday helped too!
