to reality, can be quite a journey. I have always wanted to learn to do metalwork and have had my share of ups and downs. Anyone who read A Torch is a Girl’s Best Friend knows I’ve had my share of struggle with it. I’ve gone from scared to light the torch, to daring to try a fairly complex piece for my skill level.
I had a couple of lovely stones that inspired this piece. Taking my cue from them, I created the sketch you see above. Ambitious, yes – but sometimes you have to go for it. And so I did. Some things went well, others not so well. I stayed determined and I am almost there. The further I go, the more I have invested and the more I have to lose. I have to set that aside and work from a place of confidence.
