Peyho - to wait patiently.
I was talking to a dear friend and told her that I haven’t been able to bead or create. She wisely reframed it for me and told me that perhaps I was simply allowing myself to receive and sit with things. Creating would come later.
There pairs are a riff on older designs that I let myself recreate as I waited for more inspiration. They turned out better than I could have hoped. Quills are frequently part of my work and I wanted to incorporate it into my Peyho idea.
