Though there isn't a "trick" to making gorgeous, hand-crafted pieces of jewelry, we hear that having journals for jotting down ideas helps. At least, that's what Cindy tells us. And since she stows journals next to her bed, on her desk and in her purse, we're inclined to believe her. Oh, and because she's making breathtaking pieces of jewelry. That's a good reason to believe too. Sure, when she sits down to design a piece, it doesn't always come out the way she planned, but oftentimes that's not necessarily a bad thing. Quite the opposite, in fact.
