The Healing Benefits of Creativity and Jewelry Making
by Seville Michelle
Creative expression fosters an innovative mindset that is absolutely vital to an individual’s mental growth and physical health. The capability to adapt to any challenge through creative intelligence is largely linked to social development and advancement. Actively using your imagination cultivates a powerful skillset in analytical thinking, problem solving and ingenuity. Divergent thinking is highly sought after in today’s workforce and bears an immense impact on our everyday lives. Our ability to create new ideas and let our imagination wander promotes a better self-esteem, sharpens our mind and brings us to a meditative state that fights depression and anxiety. It provides a physical detox for our bodies by reducing stress.
Why is jewelry making an incredible creative outlet?
The art of crafting a personal piece of artwork is an exceptional alternative to over-the-counter solutions for stress, insomnia, depression and anxiety. The simple repetition of jewelry making fosters a peaceful state of mind and provides an outlet for heavy strain. The completion of each piece is accompanied by a sense of accomplishment, followed by a rush of dopamine that ignites an invigorating energy in oneself.

Creating unique wearable candy jewelry is highly stimulating to a child’s imagination. The opportunity to explore their likes and dislikes when designing develops skills, and encourages creative choice and self expression. Assembling the each piece assists them in developing their planning and hand dexterity. By promoting children to express their imagination you present the opportunity to give them a small deceleration of self. By prompting children to talk about their creative choice, it aids in their language development as they are encouraged to find new ways to talk about their projects. Acquiring new descriptive and emotive vocabulary is a vital part of their learning to effectively express themselves—a skill that is fundamental in how well they interact with other people. A project that requires some degree of planning, such as making patterns from candy, choosing colors for a bracelet, or deciding how to make necklace, are all fantastic for helping children to develop their cognitive skills.
