you gotta start somewhere

sometimes it is so hard for me to actually begin a new idea. take that first step on a path i have never tread before. i am so good at preparing, and then when it comes time to begin, i hold back until the very last moment. well, i am going there. i took that step. i cannot & will not look back, but only ahead.
i finally finished my very first pair of hammered earrings!
(copper, sterling silver and african turquoise)
thanks to my newest blog buddie, Chris ~ thank you my sweet new friend. you are the best, and your jewelry is beautiful! i also have Stacie and Deryn to thank ~ check out their blogs to see their absolutely stunning jewelry! all of them have answered my questions, each & every time i asked.
******
Lord, you know my heart. you knew me, even before i knew myself. keep me in your will, and then and only then, i know i will suceed.

sometimes you need to look back to learn something from it but not turning back your way.
