Simple Goodness

The other night, while sitting in front of my jewelry-making supplies, I kept thinking about how content I felt this Christmastime. About how I was able to spend time enjoying the company of Barry and of good friends. About how I loved the cozy feeling of our apartment, glowing in the evening from the lights on our Christmas tree. About how giving and receiving handmade gifts felt so good. About how slowing things down and scaling things back allowed me the time and energy to think about Christmas memories and the meaning of the holiday. I realized that I felt so content this Christmas because things were so simple. So beautifully simple. I tried to make this realization translate itself into the jewelry I made that night. I tried to make each piece extremely pared down and straightforward:

The pieces above are all listed in the sulu-design etsy shop (images are direct links to listings, or check them all out here). Orders placed after Wednesday (tomorrow) morning will be shipped on January 6th, as Barry and I are heading to Virginia for several days to see his family. Ah, family... more simple goodness.

These are all *so* lovely. I think paring down is definitely going to be on the horizon in the next few weeks for me.

& congrats on 1000 sales!

Your post is lovely, and I so want to dive into that simplicity. It's hard to let go of all the things, and sometimes I notice they do infiltrate your creative life too. Here's to a new year of simplicity!
