You know, ever since I started making
jewelry, I never pushed myself very much..
I really thought that the fact I had been
100% self taught was a great challenge
I began with simple wrapping...
then tried some more intricate wire wrapping..
and then I was fascinated with metals and fire..
But I never really challenged myself..
I never had the patience or the confidence I
could make something outside my safety zone.
I never really tried my limits.
Don't get me wrong here.
I m really proud of what I have accomplished
But truth be told..I was afraid of failure.
I hate failing..in anything for that matter.
I have always been someone who
would only try at anything with
a really low percentage of failure.
It seems I had forgotten that the most
important thing, is trying...
That, the best part is the journey..
And not the destination…
With this pendant, I pushed myself.
It's been on my mind the last few months
but didn't have the guts to try it.
This time I did.
And I made it.
And I enjoyed every minute of this journey.
..the destination was lovely as well ;)
