Mostly A’s – Personal Bead Cave
Mostly A’s means you might create your best work in your own personal beading cave. You might be most creative when you’re able to focus on developing and executing your ideas alone in an area designed with your creativity in mind. Some men have a man cave and some beaders have a bead cave…or at least we think they should. 😉
Mostly B’s – Go Outside
Mostly B’s means you might be more excited to bead outside. Being in nature may give you a lot of inspiration and clarity on your designs and with your creativity. This would mean designing jewelry at a park, in your backyard, or anywhere that offers a healthy dose of fresh air.
Mostly C’s – Build a Like-minded Community
Mostly C’s means your creativity might gain a boost from being in a community setting. A group of friends or potential friends may offer you the chance to explore other ideas you hadn’t previously considered. Try crafting meetups, Facebook Groups, jewelry making classes, or even a friend’s house.
