Lina’s Journal – June: creativity
Welcome to Journaling with Jewellery – I am Lina from @pandora_shark_on Instagram and I am writing blog posts on the theartofpandora.com where, much like in a journal, I will be setting intentions for my month ahead. The Pandora bracelet that will capture one of my goals for the month ahead will be shared here. Please join me in creating your own inspirational bracelet for the month ahead. This is a great way to build some jewellery play into your day, set aside time to think about your goals, feel inspired and most importantly participate in a fun design challenge that you can share.
June 2021 -Creativity
Creativity doesn’t wait for that perfect moment; it fashions its own perfect moments out of ordinary ones.Bruce Garrabrant
This month’s theme is creativity!
Art or Creativity
Art or creativity can be found anywhere. I find I yearn for creativity most when I have the least amount of time for it. So as a fun challenge, I have designed this bracelet to remind me to embrace some of those creative opportunities that come up in the month ahead. These do not need to be epic or perfect, they can be simple but joyful moments that make you smile – they could be adding some coffee art to your morning cappuccino, arranging a bouquet of flowers, decorating a space, maybe solving a problem in a creative way or experimenting with some new recipes. Creativity is all around us, sometimes we just need a gentle reminder to tune into it. To remind me to unleash my imaginative potential in big and small ways, this is the Pandora bracelet design I have created.
You can’t use up creativity. The more you use, the more you have.Maya Angelou
I have added the Grand Piano Heart Dangle Charm to remind myself to tune into my creative force.
To me, creativity is punctuated by colour, and what better way to embrace that vibe than the Pandora Artist’s Palette Dangle charm.
Bruno the rainbow unicorn is a reminder that magic exists in the everyday, you just have to believe. I think Bruno pairs perfectly with Pandora’s Colourful Rainbow Dangle Charm.
This stunning dream catcher was the perfect charm to add to this bracelet as Pandora’s partnership with UNICEF, will remind me of my inner child and the purchase of this charm helps children around the world unlock their creative potential through educational opportunities.
The various pink, blue and purple muranos, Daisy Flower charms and cabochon charms that are dotted across the bracelet provide that extra pop of colour and sparkle; they remind me of walking through an art gallery or flower-filled garden. These charms will encourage me to be inspired by the perspectives and experiences around me.
“Curiouser and Curiouser!” – I have styled these charms on the Alice in Wonderland bracelet with the Cheshire Cat clasp. Lewis Carol’s enchanting story is a great reminder of how we can become immersed in the creative worlds of literature with the turn of a page.
One of the oldest and most generous tricks that the universe plays on human beings is to bury strange jewels within us all, and then stand back to see if we can ever find them.Elizabeth Gilbert.
I hope your bracelet design will help you uncover your own ‘strange jewels’ when it comes to creativity this month.
My design will act as a physical reminder of catching those creative moments in my day. How will you interpret the theme of creativity this month? Please share your imaginings and jewellery designs in the comments below.
If you would like to add a journaling practice to your bracelet design:
- Use one of the inspiring quotes above and write down some thoughts about creativity.
- You might like to consider the last time you noticed yourself being creative and how it this process made you feel.
- Write, draw, paint or do some photography for even a few minutes, and see where your imagination takes you.
- Write down one small thing you can do this month to bring some joy and creativity into your world.
