I don't know. I struggled I guess. With solder, with repetitive stress wrist problems from hammering, with spending too much money on silver.....
I really feel like I have found my medium. Finally after nearly ten years making jewelry I feel comfortable. I feel like I can grow and grow. Like the sky is the limit.
I am making tube beads now. Grant Diffendaffer has a wonderful technique in his book for making these. They come out nearly perfect. With nice straight holes. What more can you ask for?
I only just got back in the studio yesterday after a long exhausting weekend. I had my grandson nearly all weekend and then had my annual Mother's Day brunch at my place. It was fun but I was pretty tired and did a lot of resting on Monday.
But yesterday and today I am "cooking" in the studio. Lots of interesting things happening, which I will post as soon as I can.
Notice I even got a little color in.....
