i got back from my christmas break yesterday and ran off to the studio today. i was hoping to chill out this week and not do any work but with the impending move to penland this weekend, i just knew there was no time for resting. i filled a few orders and then finished my new collection pieces. i have posted a few pictures of my sketchbooks and my many notes-to-self. i don't always do a lot of drawing but i do make many notations. it was more challenging to design and create this year - i definitely feel i'm at a crossroads with my jewelry, both my collections and my studio work. i found my usual go-to shapes and ideas to be uninteresting, limiting, and frustrating. despite that, now that they're all done, i am feeling pretty good about them.
i can feel big changes on the horizon. i am so excited for it and even more excited that i just don't know what it's all going to entail.
thanks for reading.
