I love making jewelry because it is the one craft that the materials seem to make themselves into lovely objects. I have read descriptions by artists that the project made itself. For instance sculptors saying that the image was in the marble and they were just setting it free. In my long search to understand the difference between art and crafts, the interaction of the artist and materials seems to be the difference. That is my opinion anyway and I do not think my jewelry is art but that it has the potential to become art. I like doing several hobbies more than jewelry but it is more satisfying to have the interaction with the materials.
I want to thank everyone who has been looking at my blog though Craftsters and Pinterest and other sources. Having all of you looking at my stuff is very encouraging. It makes it so much easier to make things when others give me feedback which has helped me find a direction.
