Years of Ideas
There is a part of me that worries that I will run out of ideas. How many more rings can I design? How many more variations can I make using the same materials? Before I begin a new piece, I always ask: what can I do differently? What if I try… so my mind becomes attentive: a design on my kilim rug becomes the border around a moonstone; the pattern of muffin tin outlines an amethyst; a frase—picked randomly from a book—evokes fields of grass, which becomes texture on an earring. The trick (I find) is to stay connected to my work by working as constantly as I can. Breakthroughs occur in the small decisions that I take, moment to moment, and that’s how one day, a path full of possibilities opens up. The scenery changes, the vistas become expansive, and I see years of ideas line up ahead. I can do this forever! I think exitedly. But then I remember: the cycle of excitement/boredom is the nature of this game, and I get back to work.
These rings will be for sale at the Lonja Mercantil on September 20 and 21. You can see the event details in my previous post.
