"We don't make mistakes, just happy little accidents" may be the best Bob Ross quote of all time. Its truth holds in multiple areas of life, but especially in design.
Take this sweet, little leather wrap bracelet for example. I was trying to straighten the edge of a large hide, and even on my biggest table that can be a little tricky. After a couple of tries, I looked at my scrap pile and saw the beautiful asymmetry of a long strip. I snatched it up, searched through some findings and voila! our #1 selling bracelet was born!
I love that about life, sometimes the things you least expect and make absolutely no plans for, are the best gifts you didn't know you needed.
