My workshop is not glamorous...neither are my tools.
I still use a small butane torch and most of my tools are gathered from Princess Auto but they work for me.
I love the problem solving involved with silver jewelry creating..some physics and chemistry helps. Creating silver pieces is my zen place: I find that it teaches patience...which I sometimes lack in other areas of my life and I revel in the quiet creative time. Hours pass with out me even realizing it.
This time I finished up a spinner ring that was giving me grief....
2 water cast rings
and the piece I am most proud of an adjustable bamboo textured ring set with beautiful blue and green translucent jade and a small watercast droplet.
This design came to me when I was lying in bed one night thinking about how to make beautiful adjustable rings so I wouldn't have to produce many sizes.
The bamboo detail was time consuming but adds a nice touch:
I will be offering these pieces for sale at rePurpose Spring Thaw and Glamour in the Glebe in May.
