As always, there was feeling of elation as the final parts of the pearl design project came together. That final rendering, seeing how all those different elements play off each other- was it as I visualized it, better, or less? It is always a kind of a sacred time in the creation process.
And it is always followed by a sort of vacuum or emptiness, kind of like getting off this amazing roller coaster ride… it’s over, it was so amazing, and what now, what next can possibly compare to that?
And that is the creative challenge, what will I do next to push myself farther, and both have fun and scream at the top of my lungs while I am doing it?
This time, I am off the hook for the answer. The deadline for the Saul Bell competition is just 10 days away. There is a necklace design I have been working on, off and on, for several months. It’s time to finish it up. I will just share a detail of the sketch with you today…. more to follow next week.
