I always envied visual artists the chance to make something just right and have it stay that way! No nerves getting in the way or sudden, unexpected destruction. I was never any good at drawing; so glad to have found a way to gain some sort of continuous control over my art, as happens when I design and make jewelry. This, and writing/arranging music; I can just sit there as long as I want, perfecting, perfecting... Love it!
Speaking of making jewelry, here is my Sky Cluster Necklace No. 1, finished yesterday:
Available through my etsy shop, here: http://www.etsy.com/listing/75052005/sky-cluster-necklace-no-1
Two large and completely different chalcedonies, one long and smooth, one chunky and raw, share a sterling silver ring with Czech glass beads sitting across a smooth jade round, and an interesting concoction I cooked up by combining a beautiful lampwork bead by etsy's radiantmind with some blue lentil beads. I like!
You know what else I like? Nodeform's rings on etsy... mmm...
Nodeform, why do you torture me so? Why do I not have thousands of dollars to spend on your lovely creations? If I did they would all be mine... Nodeform... http://www.etsy.com/shop/nodeform?ref=pr_shop
In parting, I've been included in a couple of cool treasuries in the past bit. Check them out!
