I finally made a new piece of jewelry after what seems like an eternity. I was beginning to think I’d lost all desire to create. Thanks to my talented daughter, Sam (of http://shinrinart.wordpress.com) I was able to create this dragon pendant. She drew the dragon, free hand, on a circle of brass for me. I then etched it, riveted it onto a section of copper and made this pendant.
Our big move to the country has been more of a change than I anticipated. The weather here changes dramatically from minute to minute. We’re quite high up in altitude now and we were actually below sea level before. The sky is spectacular with stars and clouds like I’ve never seen before.
And the moon – wow, was it always that big!
We’ve had many adjustments and compromises to make. It’s no wonder I haven’t been really creative. My computer was damaged in the move thanks to a leak in the U-Haul truck which they refuse to acknowledge (but that’s another battle) and I’m not always able to go online. I can’t afford a new computer right now.
We still have stuff in boxes but I recently found an old sketchbook of mine. It had some pencil drawings I’d done a long, long time ago – not bad. I used to like drawing portraits of faces with character.
Perhaps I’m rediscovering crafts/interests that have been dormant for a while. It’s a slow awakening. I’m looking for my crochet hooks, color pencils and even brought out my guitar music books. Who knows what I’ll do next 🙂
