We live in a fast paced world, glued to our phones and computers, surrounded by stimuli of all sorts, constantly bombarded with information, hit by noise and light - and nagging cats. Oh wait, that's just mine sitting next to me right now.
Where was I? Oh, right. It's enough to drive you crazy sometimes (so is the cat). People try different things to find some peace and quiet, time for themselves, a time out from everyday stress.
This week tranquility was the topic for the Jewelry Artisans Community Oldies but Goodies Challenge. Tranquility is an issue for us, too. We are getting there through making jewelry, for example. But what kind of jewelry feels tranquil to us? It was interesting to see that we didn't necessarily have the same approach to that.
For some it was color. Pastel colors. For me it was pattern. One member found she had chosen plants.
What brings you tranquility?
