Have you ever taken a picture of a fake butterfly? What about a dead one glued to a stick? I have. Two times on this trip to be exact. Three if you count the third one I took as a joke. The first two were not jokes. The first two were out of stupidity and deception.
I came home to a handful of orders. Big, fat, yummy, custom orders that I am still working away on. Twelve of them got to the finishing stage yesterday after two bloody thumbs and a throbbing headache. I am on to new and better things in my studio. Flush set stones, 14k gold, and keum boo. Click on those little linky poo's if you don't know what those are.
I came home to my studio looking a little crazy.
I saved this photo as, "crazybench.jpg" ...it probably should have been saved as "absolutelynormaleverydaybench.jpg"
I need to stop lying to myself. I'm not fooling me anymore.
Anyways... my customs include stacking, "off beat" wedding bands, bradesmaid gift bangles, a family tree pendant, and a whole lotta random goods for some of my local boutiques. I'm really excited about them- not only because people are trusting in me to deliver, but because I am teaching myself new skills as I progress through these projects.
Sound the trumpets.
