Beginner's Delight

Making bracelets for someone special.  Thinking about how much more easily the textiles take shape in my hands, how I fret over the jeweler's bench, so worried I will not do it "right." But the metals and the stones seduce me. I can't resist them. And when I do complete a piece, I feel such satisfaction that I got it to look like my dream of how it would look. There is that pleasure in being a "beginner" again, and succeeding. :-)
