I initially used my wire jig and made a large puzzle piece. It was a little large for what I initially wanted so I set it aside and worked on making a smaller piece. I photocopied it at 50% and it was a really good size. At that Point, I just decided to free hand it. It was much easier to free hand the pattern than I thought it would be.
The ultimate outcome of this idea was a wire puzzle piece pendant with blue stones dangling from it.
I thought about the larger puzzle piece that I had made with the jig and decided to put it on my wrist and bend it around a little. I then put a pink Swarovski butterfly and Swarovski blue bead in the middle. I had thought about putting a beaded bracelet to attach to my wrist, but I decided to use a large chain instead. The outcome:
I put pictures on Facebook and got a lot of comments and likes. My sister, wants a set and I have a friend who is interested and who shared the picture on her page. Now I have to figure out how much to charge for things. Maybe this is actually working. Maybe I will be able to sell things I make. I may not or I may be able to make a living at this, but maybe I'll be able to recoup some money to buy new supplies instead of just spending money!
All I know is, I have fun when I create, and if I can make a little money while I do something I love, how can that be bad?
Oh, and since my inspiration for this was the Autism symbol and since Michael has Autism, I will donate a percentage of my earnings to an Autism fund!
