My dilemma is where to spend my time - painting or making jewelry - or just chuck both and give it all up - yea that's right, that is something I am considering - get rid of the pressure to create/produce. I have not made any decision yet and am considering all options and I am not taking this lightly. I think a lot has to do with if and when I sell my NJ house, where we will be living and so forth. An awful lot to think about.

Two New Pair of Earrings
As I said in a previous post I am making some jewelry for myself - these are 2 more earrings for moi. The are from the Medici Drop pattern in Marcia DeCoster's Beaded Opulence book. I think I am done with earrings for now and a bracelet is in my future.
I am in a reflective period right now trying to decide how to best spend my creative energies. Before I got involved with the jewelry I was and still am a painter - large abstracts on canvas and paper and smaller watercolor landscapes. I have not been painting at all lately and I am not sure why - just not doing it. This is not to say I do not have a large body of work in my studio but I am just not producing any new art right now.
