Day 16,925: The Process
Since I have resumed wrapping, I've definitely noticed a shift in my style. The copper has inspired it. Maybe even required it. Hard to tell. We're still getting to know each other.
I never predesign. It never works. Instead, I sit with the stone. I stare at the wire. I wait for a hunch. Only then do I move forward. Intuition leads the way.
What I think a pendant will look like when I begin is usually nowhere near what it looks like at the end. If I'm doing it right, there will be at least one point, typically halfway through, when I find myself convinced that the design won't hold and that everything up to that point has been a waste of time and wire.
But guess what ...
It always holds. It's never a waste. It's all about trust. A constant reminder to keep moving forward anyway, for which I am so grateful.
