They Spoke, I Listened


Sally gave me some beads the other day(go check out her website. You'll drool!). I took them home and strung them the very next day. Then the strangest thing happened. Today, I was in the middle of getting some projects done-ones with deadlines in a couple days- and I stopped what I was doing, cut apart the bracelet I made with Sally's beads, and made this with them instead! Now I know it is not the best piece of wire jewelry you have ever seen, but coming from my hands, it is not too terrible. I really can't stand to use wire. Sally has tried to teach me. I have tried to learn. But once I leave class, I am lost, uninspired, all thumbs, cursing my lack of skill and the money I spent on tools that I could have spent on beadweaving supplies. I waste more wire than I use. It is just a constant source of frustration. So where did this come from?!? I really do not know. Maybe it was the beads themselves. The tan colored ones, Sally called Buddha Beads. Maybe that has something to do with it.

you know, often the most breath-taking art happens when the artist is most tortured, frustrated, and insecure. keep wrestling with your thumbs, curse the money you think you wasted, waste all the wire you need to, but berate your talent no longer. that's some beautiful wire work and a great piece! and it came about through YOUR creative process! xoxo ~your proud big bro a-weighin' in

Thank you so very VERY much for that. I really appreciate it. And I know it comes from the heart. Wish Gram could see all this.
