When I start a project, I usually have a very clear idea of what I am trying to accomplish. Some artists prefer to see their work take on a life of its own, only knowing at the end what the final product will be. I have a hard time working that way. Yes, details are often left to be decided on mid-process, like the finish on these earrings. My gut told me matt. but I was not sure.. I should learn to listen to my gut more often. It almost never fails me.
All that is left now is to make a pair of “felt pearls” in the right size, made of merino wool and a touch of silk then set them securely on the embedded posts.
Meanwhile, more designs are running through my head. I need to keep a sketch book on hand.
