I know that everything makes more sense in context, especially jewelry like mine. Still, I was a bit surprised to hear from my own father that he, too, preferred the photos with me wearing my creations (a sincere remark, I believe, for in these photos you normally don't see my face, so it's not that my dad likes it for any other reason than 'art').
So I decided to take advantage of the fact that I have a long-awaited 'date' coming up this Tuesday (tomorrow, ha!) & document my decision-making process with regard to what to wear.
Fully aware of my sins, failures & shortcomings I nevertheless set out happiliy to accomplish my mission.
Here's a short (but still long-ish) version of the step-by-step.
P.S. the photo is of a 7 sins brooch (Giotto)
