Capturing the Process

I love taking 'close-up' pictures of what I am working on, and the steps to get from start to finish. It's fun to see the process this way. I am also trying to improve my photography, so there will probably be a lot more of this nonsense.

In this photo, I am cleaning out a drilled hole with a fine needle file.

I love the challenge of capturing a great image. This image is not so great...
I'm cutting some small jumprings in this photo. Don't be confused by the chain hanging off the sides, those are safe from the saw. I am cutting a small coil off the larger coil falling to the left.

Making an aloha bracelet.

I love to share the process, thanks for looking.

Scrap play

I like to use odd spaces in my sterling silver sheet that would otherwise end up as scrap.

What would you call these little goodies? I'm thinking 'Happy Raindrops'.

These will most likely end up to be post awkward pair. Love it!

Skull vs. Army of Circles

Who do you think will win this faceoff?

I'd put my money on the skull.

Looking Forward

The bridal party jewelry is finished. Whew. One piece was especially a challenge for me, but all is good in the world now. I think the pieces came out fantastic, and I know the bride will love it all. Feels good to finish.

So, I am now in furious production mode for the Boston Handmade Somerville Marketplace. I hope to have a bunch of these ideas in my head transfered to sterling silver in time to showcase them there. For some odd reason, I feel like I never have enough inventory. I pretty much know the demographic for this show since this will be my third year. I hope to accomplish lots in the next 3 weeks! stay tuned...

I am also looking forward to sharing my tent with Foxontherun photography. I love the vintage style printing of her photographs. It will be interesting sharing my tent with a complete stranger, but I do look forward to it.

I'll leave you now looking at this sweet cuff!
