To Err is Human, To Finish, Divine
Such a weight is being lifted off my shoulders as I prepare for the Sacramento Fine Arts Festival. I am trying harder to focus, and I am getting more done. My most satisfying accomplishments so far have been finishing pieces that have been on my design board for months. Unfortunately what usually happens is I look at them for eons in their unfinished state, and carry a bag of angst around with me because I have not completed them. Then, I'll finish them in a hurry just in time to sell them at a show, without proper pictures and some fondling time.
Well, you can bet I'm fondling them this week! Here is my favorite completion so far - it has been in the works for longer than I care to admit as I struggled with how to pull it together. It started with the cubed "safari on ice" beads, and the rest of it came together for me (with much struggling) this week. Thanks to Susan Sheehan for the idea of turning our silver birds nest beads into actual nests carrying pearl "eggs".
