A List and A Silver Lining

Since my March 27 post regarding my search for balance several things have happened that have really helped focus me.

First, I should mention that I had blog friends comment, share their own struggles and offer suggestions on the post. Knowing that one is not alone is so comforting! Thank you!

Secondly, I have been asked to consign my jewelry at The Radius Gallery and Museum Shop at the PA State Museum in Harrisburg. This is great; its a target with a defined goal, 12 pieces. So I have made a list and posted it. Visuals really help me.

And lastly, I made a unscheduled visit to the doctor for knee pain. Results say arthritis. Ten days resting the knee means (here is the silver lining) 10 days at my work table. So I decided to take one afternoon and experiment and work on something I have been putting on the back burner for a while, making a polymer ring. The design needs refining or changing or something but I did manage to push through the biggest glitch...I can't break it!


  1. Congratulations on the museum consignment!

    Sorry to hear about the arthritis, but I'm glad you're taking it as an opportunity. Your ring is gorgeous and I can't wait to see how it develops.

  2. Those pieces are so cool! How did you manage to make a polymer ring that doesn't break? Do you use a protective coating?
