Many hats

In my world, things sometimes happen in an unexplained  sequence. I wear many hats and I think I wear most of them well.  As a Indie business owner and jewelry designer, I am my photographer, web designer, graphic designer, production line, social media, etc.  I’ll  hammer metal at 8 am and pour resin at midnight. I’ll blog from a waiting room and design business cards from my laptop. This is how I operate and also how I keep from being bored.

Lately though, I just want to get my hands dirty, I want to make things. Lots of things. My new found love for working with metal, particularly recycled metal, has been so exciting! I recycle, repurpose, and have an eye like a hawk for found objects. I brought home a suitcase full of rocks from Seattle which will eventually be rings and necklaces.

So, the question is, which hat will I wear today? Don’t get me wrong, I love hats, but somedays, I’d like to retire a few…


Feeling bored, dying to create

Sometimes you find yourself in a situation you cannot change. But that doesn’t mean your mind can’t dream.
Today I find myself bored (which almost NEVER happens)  and my mind wanders to my workbench…all that metal, stone, fabric and inspitation, and there’s nothing I can do about it. But the way I see it, I’ll appreciate it that much more when we meet again. So for now, I’ll sketch in my mind… Stay tuned
