Finally, an in process post! I’ve been working concurrently on the two big projects that I’m in the middle of right now. That way when I get bored with one, I can switch to the other. That’s much preferable to wondering off out of the studio because I’m just sick of filing or planishing or whatever. It also helps me think about the next step in each piece while working on the other one. Kind of frees up the old problem solving area of my brain.
I also decided to try a chain from the West African Jewelers book I got for my bday. It’s a non-solder, nice thick chain that I thought would be fun. I love the way it came out (though it needs to be longer!) even though my fingers aren’t used to wire work anymore. You can also donate tools, silver, and/or money to the West African Jewelers. If you think our economy’s bad, think about how bad it is when you’re surrounded by the Ebola situation. It’s not just worrying about your life, you also need to worry about your livelihood.
