The Weekend's Progress and Set back!!

This weekend we got a second workbench for the studio and started creating some nice work stations. Bryan and I can actually both be down there comfortably now and thanks to his electrical skills last weekend we can SEE better!

I have two old doors that were left in the house when I bought it so thought I would use them to create a wall between my studio and rest of the basement. I eventually want to etch our Amuck logo on the glass.

Now for the set-back! I went downstairs last night to photograph all the birds I've been working on this past week. When I got upstairs and started looking at the photos I realized that I had forgotten to cut the bird's beak on all the copper back pieces!! I can't believe that I got all the way finished with that layer without realizing, now I have to re-cut each of them. I'll keep those pieces and later on come up with a different bird design, probably with a sterling beak. I'm starting to feel really panicked by all the work I need to get done before the Brookside Art Annual. I also have a one day art fair the weekend before the Brookside show.

Also in the works right now is an exclusive line that I am making for STUFF in Brookside. It's going to be such a bright and girlie line, here are some of the little posies for one of the collections. They are made from copper,coffee tins,cookie tins and sterling silver. My goal is to have these pieces finished this week.
