It's election day here in Israel.
None of the parties are an exact fit to my world view, so I had to make choices. I had to check my values, and consider each of them against the values of the possible parties from which I had to choose. It was about choosing the most important values. Those that will ensure a democratic compassionate future for our neck of the wood.
When designing a new piece of jewelry, I always go back to the core values of BAARA Jewelry.
- Well designed and well made
- Eco friendly and locally sourced materials
If the jewelry I just created can be produced following these values, I go ahead and continue the process in which at the end I put it on the website and you guys can buy it. If not, it goes into the recycling bin. It's a hard decision to make, throwing away my creation, but an important one.
Mismatched Circle + Line Earrings. These recently made the cut and are available here.
I didn't realize I was intuitively doing that until today, when, for the first time in my life, I had to make a list to help me make a decision about the election (don't ask - Israeli politics in a mess at the moment).
So, what difficult choices have you had to make lately?
