Where From Here?
For the first time, I don't know where to go from here. I usually have only too much to pull from as far as designs and inspiration. I don't have designer's block but rather a directional block.
Due to my impatience and over flowing of ideas, I've gone through a lot of design and material growth in the last 2 years with much waste. I pretty much don't have any desire to revisit what was done. I even got over my constant searching and (over)buying of new gemstones...now nothing much is new to me. Passion and excitement has always been what feeds my drive and I'm scared to follow my next drive. I don't have what it takes to go there...goldsmithing in the ancient style. I don't have the time to take the classes that I don't know where they're offered. Nor do I have the space to set up that kind of shop. Of course the other obstacle is that it is such a different market then what I have carved out that I will likely alienate my following now.
I am hoping something will click in my thinking that will present a path I can travel down. In the meantime, it will be interesting to see what I come up with for the next collection as I have NO visions for the first time. Hmm, that might be an interesting brand new approach to doing a new collection...we will see. I can always jump to my other passion before I was consumed by my accidental run-in with beads...plants!
