I’ve dived back into my metals projects pretty much full steam after the 4 week hiatus I took doing nothing but playing Minecraft and Bioshock, and reading some great new comics and books. And making cookies.
But I’m back in the studio more often, trying to find time to squeeze into working on projects.
And with that, a million new ideas that are trying to distract me from my old ideas that are half finished.
I really need to work on a wooden box I’ve promised my boyo since summer. It’s going to be a custom Magic card box, and I’ve been really excited to make it but keep putting it aside to work on things for cons and other events.
BUT IT’S GOING TO GET DONE DAMN IT. Today and tomorrow I have no plans except to go to the store and maybe do laundry, both of which are optional.
I also got a new idea. An ambitious idea, but I think a plausible idea. Have you seen these jewelers saws before?! They’re gorgeous, and I’ve been wanting to make my own handle and steal an old saw body from the studio to call my own for years. I think this will be on my list of personal projects this semester.
Lord knows I love making stuff to make a little money, but also making useful things for myself is super rewarding, so it’s going on the list of possible projects. Along with wedding rings, containers, and a multitude of other things.
In the works now though:
I have three HUGE necklace pieces, which I posted a few weeks ago in the works.
I have also been making a few smaller pendants out of twigs and stones.
Going to see if I can make some mini ‘elemental’ arrows inspired by the old Thief games.
And of course, the handful of commissions I have open.
It’s been a busy week but I love it.
