Not to worry, I'm in no way giving up making jewelry. In fact, I may have finished the very large piece I've been working on; I just need to let it sit for a little while before I'm sure. Sometimes it is hard for me to know when I'm done; I don't want to overdo it, but neither do I want to stop short.
Hmm. Maybe writing and jewelry making have something in common. I've gotten used to stopping short when I write; maybe I can go on a bit more. Time will tell.
