Did you ever think that crack in your floor could be inspiring? You didn't? Well, it certainly can be! Im actually taking some time to make myself a couple of pieces to wear to the reception in Boston coming up on the 4th.
The first step was texturing and forming this piece of silver for a cuff. The crack on my studio floor made a nice surface texture.
I'll work on this more tomorrow after work.

Actually, what haven't I been up to lately might be a better question. I've been taking graphic design classes at night at the Kansas City Art Institute. Im starting to learn how to use this computer! I'm also taking a hand lettering class on Saturdays for the next couple of months. I've always been intrigued by engraving and I hope in the future to be able to add some hand lettering via engraving into my metalwork. I'm picturing engraved flourishes into the wings of my Citybird pieces!
Lots of skulls have been on my workbench this past month. I've been busy getting all of the following pieces ready for the upcoming exhibition "From Minimal to Bling" being held at The Society of Arts and Crafts in Boston this winter.
As mentioned in a previous post I am now on the creative team for Ice Resin this year and have just received my first batch of goodies to come up with some projects with. As I was waking up this morning an idea started formulating in my brain so I'm off to play with Ice Resin this afternoon.
Have a great weekend everyone!!
