To do or not to do,

That is the question!
After reading the post by Morwyn I had my own doubts as to whether doing another year of the Bead Journal Project would let me grow as an artist.
But then I realized that I will always have a special place in my heart for this first year. Not only have I grown as a bead artist, I have grown as a person. I look back just a year ago and see how different I am from then. It makes me smile.
I have new ideas in the making, this Fairy Crown project has sparked a whole series of work that I am going to start on. Plus I have new galleries that have signed on to sell my jewelry.
Yet I have decided to sign on for another year. I am going to work a little smaller, the theme I have chosen demands it. And I have a definite technique that I will be working on.
With all that said, I am so happy to be joining you all for another year. Thank you for opening up your lives and hearts to everyone in this project. You are the main reason I have decided to go on!

Wow that crown is stunning, I love the sculptural aspect to it. Any chance of seeing it on the Fairy Queen's head?

That fairy crown is beautiful. How big is it? If it fits on your head, post a photo of yourself wearing it.

I love being involved with the BJP even though I'm behind, so many beads, so little time.

Thanks for sharing your inspirational work.

Beadily yours
Susan Feldkamp

For those of you that have asked, this Fairy Crown is large enough to fit on a human head. It is in an exhibit now through April, so the only photo you will see of it is this one until then.
I am behind on my journal pages, so I got to get back to them. Bye Bye
