Process Shot of the Week

I'm still adjusting to my intense fall schedule, but did manage to put in a productive studio day yesterday; finished two brooches and laid out a few more. Did lots of drilling/smoothing of glass. I also made a few necklaces. I'm still really unsure about how I feel about this work. I flip flop between being totally in love with it and gaping pits of insecurity at the thought of having to show it to anyone, let alone at Sieraad. The only solution I can see though it to just keep pressing forward.

Quote of the Week

"The breeze at dawn has secrets to tell you
Don't go back to sleep.
You must ask for what you want.
Don't go back to sleep.
People are going back and forth across the doorsill
where the two worlds touch.
Don't go back to sleep."

~Rumi, The Breeze at Dawn

Process Shot of the Week

 So after nearly 2 months of doing everything BUT make stuff (prepping for four classes, anyone?), I finally made it back into the studio. It was super productive and amazing and made me just the teensyist bit less nervous about Amsterdam. Hopefully once my classes get more settled, I'll be able to eek out a little more time for making during the week.
