So much jewelry ... so little self control!

One of the most difficult things about being a jewelry artist (I think) is letting go! You find these wonderful materials and works of art that you procure, to utilize in your own creative process and then once your vision has come to life ... there it goes!

I tend to choose things I like or that I would wear, and that makes it even harder! I'm not very good at picking out colors that are in trend but are not my personal preference (i.e., purples) and still creating something I feel is worthy of offering for sale. And so, you can appreciate how difficult it is to be sitting here with literally piles and piles of jewelry in front of me! Ach! Quick - someone save me before I hoard it all for myself!
I've always loved jewelry and just the fact that I'm ever in the position to have a pile of jewelry in front of me, is completely delightful! Let alone the fact that I love it all! So I'm certainly enjoying the stock I have on hand, ready to be photographed and listed.

And so I offer a few photos of the tip of the iceberg ... some of the bracelets and a few of the earrings that I will begin to start posting in my Etsy Shop (hopefully!) later today. I'm especially charged up about the earrings, I am really in love with so many of my current designs. Many of the materials are artisan-crafted and the colors, sizes and styles are so fun! Well, I better stop gabbing and start working. I have some other things that need to be done before I can get to the photography! I hope you find something special somewhere in your day to bring a smile.
