I’m an engineer by default, so when my brain recognizes a pattern, I translate that into the perfect jewelry equation so production takes up less time and brain power (when you’re a mom, saving brain power is awesome). For instance, I figured out the perfect equation for making lariats. No matter what, you use the same amount of beads and/or chainmaille bits, no ifs, ands, or buts. Same with the chains in between because most of my lariats are basically long station necklaces. I also just figured out the perfect equation for a new Grace Bead bracelet design for the standard wrist size of 7.5″ (my wrists are above average size, so it was a challenge). All this uniformity makes me very happy. Sometimes it’s nice to create order out of chaos. Too much chaos isn’t good for anyone.
