I wear a few hats. I homeschool, work a part-time job from home, create jewelry and run my Etsy shop and am currently doing research regarding Fair Trade businesses. But its time to cross a bridge. I need to cut something out OR get very serious about organizing my time because I am at capacity. I have always believed in living a balanced life and I need to start walking the talk.
Do you ever feel this way?
One thing I have decided to do is focus my creativity in regard to art/jewelry by creating "lines" of work. I have spent a lot of time experimenting with polymer over the last year and a half but I think its time to be directed about what I am doing. Part of my college experience as a craft major was about balancing the mix of assembly line pieces and one-offs...I need to get back on that bike, no matter how wobbly I may be at first.
Here we have the early stages of a line...one pair of earrings is finished ,others are in various stages. Stones/beads to be included are also shown.
I am also working on a secondary line that would be warmer, earthier...as seen with these petite drop earrings entitled "Flax".
I'd love to hear the thought of other artists on this...I suspect I might not be alone in my longing for healthy balance!
