At the beginning of the new year, Tracy Statler with Making Bracelets, posted on her blog that she was going to host a Wellness Word Jewelry Challenge. The challenge could not be more fitting for me personally, because wellness, health and overall fitness had become a very important part of my life. Over a year ago, I made a pledge to make my health a priority and have completely changed the way I eat (plant based) and exercise almost daily. I learned that “wellness” is something that can’t be taken for granted and must be practiced daily to achieve and maintain. Good health and strong mind creates a life with more joy and surprising adventures!
Our challenge was to choose an inspirational word or phrase in an area of our life where we wish to make a change or will continue to work on. My chosen word was:
I choose “evolve” as my wellness word because it was one that resonated with me. Over the past year, I have seen myself evolve from poor health to better health. I have also seen myself go from feeling lost and unfocused, to feeling more grounded and with a life of purpose and new direction. It has truly been a year of evolution.
And with keeping to the evolve theme, the jewelry medium I choose to work with continues to evolve. For the Wellness Challenge, I wanted to work with the ever so popular materials of leather. Metal and leather, a beautiful combination.
I want to thank Tracy for organizing this challenge. With all blog hops, as fun as they are, it takes a lot of time to coordinate. Thanks again, Tracy and hope to see you sometime soon in the future. Especially since you live just a hop-skip-jump away. To see what others have created for the Wellness Word Challenge, please visit these participating jewelry designers below. Thank you again, Tracy, and hope to see you soon!
