Making a Mockery
Yesterday's jewellery class was highly productive as I made this entire bangle in the three hour session! Okay, even those of you with less than 20:20 vision might well have spotted that it is just made out of paper but it is the first version of a coursework piece that must be finished by spring. I even cracked on and cut out one of the ships that will make up my copper Mk. 2 prototype. This mock up will enable me to practice the different techniques that I need to master before I go on to make my final more expensive silver/brass version. I might even get a second wearable piece of jewellery into the bargain!
An evening where I managed to concentrate on what I'm doing and got encouragement to exceed my goal for the evening's class has really given me a lift. Funnily enough, I got a decent night's sleep too. These boosters have helped me realise that my head hasn't turned to mush forever and hopefully it won't be long before I get my focus back, return to my normal creative experimental self and can get on top of my to do list once more - just in time for the Christmas rush!
