  • #marchmeetthemaker | Day 18 | Mistake or Lesson

Trial and error is common around these parts. I used to beat myself up about things not going to plan, but often my mistakes just lead to new creative processes and sometimes even better designs.

A pretty good example of that is this little flower pin. It was going to be an earring until I hammered the wire too thin and wire snapped off as I was setting the stone.
The stone fit tightly into the bezel, so I’d have to cut out the stone and scrap everything to start over. After a few curse words, I then thought, why don’t I make this into a hair clip or pin for my apron?? I had to use glue to make this one, because the turquoise would be ruined if soldered again with the stone in place (ask me how I know THAT mistake/lesson 🤣🌋). Because I used glue to salvage my mistake, it’s not an item I would sell, but I am now thinking about new designs to make these into other types of accessories!

Also if you’re not a metalsmith and you’re like what the hell is this chick talking about, feel free to ask me anything!
