Here's a peek at what I'm making. I'm making jewelry pieces and I have so many ideas my head is about to explode! I had to make a trip to Home Depot to purchase a grinder cuz my hands were so tired from using a file to smooth out the edges. Love Love Love the grinder!
On Monday I made a trip to Flagstaff (more on that later) and was so excited to stop in Thunderbird Supply. I bought metal, wire, tweezers, polishing cloth, liver of sulphur and oh by the way that shit smells awful! But I'm excited to try out a new way of patina-ing my pieces.
Today I'm etching more metal to use as background pieces or additional adornments. A timely process but great results. I'm having fun using all my tools that were collecting dust... haha. A circle metal cutter, a dapping tool, and new metal stamp. Last night my soldering iron went kappoop...it's sparked and then there was a little smoke and then a smell! Yikes, Tom keeps telling to get a fire extinguisher for the studio, he may be right! All's well, but need a new soldering iron :( That damn glitchy monkey is back! Think positive, right. I'm having way too much fun to worry about a broken soldering iron.
