This year I'm taking part in the European street team gift exchange, which is called Secret Santa. I've been given the name and likes and dislikes of another teammate and now I have to make something for her. I realized how difficult it is to make something for someone you don't know, sometimes it's difficult even if you do know the recipient of the gift.
This time though I'm struggling with it, I had a lot of ideas for a brooch design, you can see sneak peeks of the three of them half made, not sure which one will get the green light! The one that's mostly finished is very different from what I usually make, I was inspired by India and the many bright and vivid colors they use but I'm afraid of being too close to the kitschy side of things. Then there's the absolutely simple one and the one that's a bit in between the two, not too simple but not too flashy either, that one is kind of growing on me more and more.
I'll be working on them over the weekend and hopefully I will make a decision before the due date for the sending the gift.
