The thread on saw piercing had a profound impact on me. I really
like piercing and I think I am quite good at it and I enjoy the
results, and the customers are happy with my work.
What I feel the thread did was make me aware that I have not been
using a technique that brings me satisfaction and monetary benefit as
much as I could. I am quite grateful for this forum and what I learn
from all of you. I have been making jewelry for over 30 years, and I
always find new inspiration and joy using metal and/or gemstones to
express myself artistically. Orchid provides a new dimension by
having the ability to be connected to so many ideas, techniques, and
resources with so many other creative people and it is expansive and
sometimes overwhelming. While we ponder the effects of the economy
we can be quite sure in the knowledge that our creativity cannot be
diminished. Creativity is ever expanding and where there is the will
there is a way to express. Happy New Year to All.
