Here is my newest piece of jewellery - a little ring which features the same technique as the Bronze Cuff. Making this cheered me up as recently I have been giving my lapwork the lions share of my time. I have about three weeks worth of beads that I cant even show as they are intended for a competition - this time the British Bead Awards for Bead Magazine. Competitions are fun to enter but start off a whole cycle of self criticism and then doubt in one's abilities - and you cant even show your work for feedback - so I'm giving my clay priority for a while. I'm getting used to feeling quite torn between the two and wish I could find a way to give both my lampwork & Metal Clay work equal time.............how do you juggle your time?
