Unlike the summer of no rain (literally three months without), we’re now getting that gloomy, redolent, rainy weather I crave. What is better than a pajama day in the studio creating? The cats love to watch me work.
I’ve learned much in the past few weeks experimenting with copper, snips and my torch. Clearly I gravitate toward the knobbly look. There’s no question that my pieces are handmade, and my goal is not to get my creations looking more professionally made. On the contrary, it’s the unusual and whimsical that I’m trying to capture.
With all the new tools, patinas, textures, findings, connectors, charms, and chains, there is no end to this. And that suits me just fine.
