New Jewelry

Well, I've done it. I finally completed a few projects worthy of the title of metalsmithing. It's been a tough learning process. Here is a sapphire and sterling silver ring for your viewing pleasure:



I also made a feather ring and one pretty petite band with patina:


















Until next time...

Working on New Designs

Busy in the studio today creating, creating, creating! Finally, back to work...

Getting perfect natural light is proving the biggest challenge. We have only a few windows in this dark little cabin. The fresh snow helps reflect some light into the house. I can't wait for spring sunshine, though.

Well, here's a look at a few items soon to be in the shop:

Surgery

My poor toddler had to have dental surgery today. Basically, early teeth grinding led to my sweetie needing to have all four upper teeth extracted. What I thought would be my greatest fear turned out for the best as she will now be fitted with a temporary bridge until her adult teeth come in. Long story short, I recorded a video of her a few hours after surgery, toothless, trying to find hidden dinosaur bones in an egg. The egg was a gift from her aunt and uncle. She is obsessed with dinosaurs at the moment and this egg offered a welcome distraction from the after surgery pain. She is SO CUTE without front teeth. I will enjoy the next two weeks with my toothless doll. Enjoy a glimpse into my mamahood.

Also, that is not my real voice. I don't know what happens to your voice when you give birth, but it is something strange. I really am an adult.

This is a video my friend, Amanda, shared of the tsunami on the southern coast of Oregon today. Very tragic and only a teeny fraction of the damage done in other parts of the world. This harbor is close to where I used to live. My heart is sad.

She Says "I love you"

My new niece learned her first sentence. Listen for her to mimic her mom and dad.
