I have commitment issues....
...with jewelry, not people. I make beads because I used to have certain bead designs in my head. I couldn't buy the designs I wanted so I learned to make beads. Now that I can make beads, I have trouble fully committing them to a design.
Do any of you do that?
I'll think of a design for a group of beads and reluctantly put them into a piece - all the while thinking of the other designs I could do with the same beads. Isn't that why some people never marry? While dating they think of all the other people they could be dating? That's a committment issue and I have it with beads.
I have two finished pieces on my desk now. They've been sitting there for about 2 months. After I made them, I immediately wanted to rip them apart - I could have done a better design. But I'm forcing myself to keep them, to see if I can get over my committment phobia. Not sure it's going to work, I'm eyeing them as I write this entry.
I need a Bead Committment Issues Support Group - and want you to help form one by responding with a comment - are you able to commit or not?
