Hi! How have you been? What have you been up to? Have you missed me? No? Well, (sniffle) I have missed you.
Oh, what have I been up to, you say, besides ignoring you? No, I promise I was NOT ignoring you! Truly. I have been working very hard at several things.
1. I have been busy losing my job (due to restructuring, a.k.a. deleting our entire department)
2. Going to jewelry school at Studio Jewelers Ltd to learn how to make shiny things that I could not make before and
3. Mostly fretting about not having money or health insurance. These things do take up a LOT of time. But I have something to show for it! Check it out. In the first week I have made all of this!
Two brass rings, a couple brass pendant blanks, a brass and copper turtle pin, domed copper earrings and a chain. Let me tell you, it’s good to know how to make a chain, but it is so much better financially and mentally to just buy a pre-made chain. Unless you are making a funky custom one, it really is not worth the time and effort to make your own.
I will post more soon – I swear! No, for reals.
