Since April, I have been coming up with design after design of bridal hair accessories using my wirewrapping techniques. I chose to design again as part of my therapy for my depression and at the same time fulfilling a dream that I have put on hold for a very long time. I don't know how this new path is going to take me especially when I go back to studying in Australia...but I hope to finish well.
So far, I was able to come up with various combs, hair pins, hair vines, hair wreaths and bridal headbands. I am so grateful that I had the opportunity to design again. I'll be honest, it was a struggle at first to get up and design again especially that I was silently suffering from depression that was then confirmed by my psychiatrist more than a month ago. Everyday, I push myself to go to my workshop and grab my wires and beads and get going. Everyday, I have to work on my confidence and believe in myself that I can show up in this world as myself...as someone who loves to create beautiful things and share it to the world. Everytime I finish a design, I feel that I get to retrieve a part of me that I thought I lost. I know that designing is part of my calling and my purpose. I do wish that this passion will never die out.
I have been debating where I should first sell my hair adornments. I tried it first on Etsy but I then decided to transfer them here in my website since Etsy can only provide ten categories for my products. I'll just list my hair accessories there someday when I am already capable on replicating my designs. Right now, I just want to take things a step at a time, design from my heart and get myself out there.
