A Pin...Transformed

Minimalism is much harder than it looks. Using the Tibetan cloud motif as a starting point (related to my usual curling design), I created a pin that was intended to be a minimal expression. In addition, I added a rhodolite garnets that I had bought:

After having this pin for a year plus, I was glad to rearrange it and make it more vibrant, and yes, embellished. I often get chastised for cutting apart old pieces, but sometimes it can be a very rejeuvenating and creative process. Why not go back and continue those pieces that didn't gel the first time?

Completely worth it, right?

This pin was so dramatically transformed that it is now going to be a pin that I showcase in advertising.
