As you may have been aware, I have been working on these pesky brooches since November. I started with a burst of energy, then completely deflated when I hit a place where I just hated what they looked like. After a brief break in December I started up again. It’s been a frustrating, challenging, inspiring journey in persevering on these. I have posted several times in the past couple months about the highs (few) and lows (many) of making the brooches- (you’ll have to go back a few posts).
it has been such an interesting process. Some friends and colleagues suggested I just “move on”. I thought about that believe me, as I was at such a standstill or at most, inching along.
But I hated the idea of leaving the brooches in their sad and unresolved state. So I continued little by little. I think I’ll save my thoughts on the actual process that started finally working and what I learned for next time. In the meantime I will start to show you some of the work. Here’s one.
