My brain on art.

I had to have a bit of a tidy up yesterday as it was all getting out of control.

Even I can’t operate under these conditions, and, believe me, I tried.

I truly think that this is what my brain looks like. Cluttered with everything going on at once. No wonder I get nothing done.

I have to ignore the outside world just to survive.

Now it looks a little calmer.

I can feel my anxiety settling down as I look at it.

A couple of deep breaths and now I’m ready to perform surgery.

God that’s organized!

Even the, lets pile everything on here because I don’t know what to do with it, table is looking spiffy.

I’ve almost frightened myself now.

Except for this complete and utter mess I could almost consider myself cured.

Oh well.

(No hope for the wicked).

P.S. Just so you know, the turquoise is causing trouble. 

To be fair, the turquoise is set nicely, but the design just isn’t doing anything for me.

Have to have a rethink.

However, I did make a nice pair of earrings which I also had a lot of trouble with but I enjoyed figuring out.

I’m never going to make any money from doing this stuff as it takes me all day to make anything worthwhile.

It’s all in the process though, and, (thank heavens), I enjoy that.

Here are the earrings.

Every time I soldered something new onto them, something else popped off. I really should start using the medium solder as well as the easy solder. I have it but … (I was going to give you a reason for not using it but honestly don’t have one. It’s hanging on its hook all ready and waiting).

Also, one of the gems popped out when I thought I’d finished with them. I think I’m a little too gentle with setting them. It worries me that I’m going to scratch them. I think the more I do it the more confident I’ll get, however, so I’m not too concerned.

Practice, practice, practice …

    I hate it when my bench gets all chaotic like that. But it always seems to be in that state! I think the earrings are gorgeous and I agree–I love figuring the process and figuring my way through the problem spots.
