I am actually really proud of myself for coming up with projects that don't involve my ceramics at all. Not that I don't love my clay, but I think it is time for me to expand my skills, particularly when it comes to designing jewelry projects. Someday, I hope to write a book, and I know I don't want to write about ceramics, so I think these skill building exercises are important for me to start to transition into the world of multi-media jewelry.
