more in store: filling the virtual shelves

good news: these little beauties just hit the shop this evening :)

other news:. i miss my torch.
i'm bringing it back after the weekend.

the torch I use in the university's studio is out-of-commission
it's left me feeling unsettled and unsure of my technique
funny how quick i get to know equipment as a collaborator in the process.

i depend on it being constant and predictable
a flame to companion my work

yes, there are other torches available here.
however, these are far too cumbersome and hot for the precise work i need
i worry about disappointing my buyers

it is a heavy feeling.
i want each person to enjoy their purchase
creations from my mind, heart, and hands

can't wait to travel 200 miles to get that little flame!

I am not an artist like you, but I love to take pictures and using another person's camera is just ALL WRONG regardless of how great the camera may be. The tool is definitely part of the creation.

I got my 18k earrings today, they are beautiful and simple- everything I hoped for and more!

kelly, it's so true. no matter what art medium you work in (yes - taking pictures is art too!)
our tools are a part of the art

i'm tickled you're enjoying your earrings! :)

Those earrings are so beautiful! I can't wait to get the earrings I ordered from you (and also can't wait to order some more)! I even made a friend buy me a pair of your earrings for Christmas! Love them! :)
