Now, this is a hammering room! The wall you can't see is full of forming stakes. I'm at a three day forging and stone setting workshop with Jeff Georgantes. The metals studio at Montgomery College is great.

"Christmas Vacation" comes to mind... I'm just waiting for the squirrel to jump out. πŸ™‚ She's definitely interested in something in there!

I think gardenias are my favorite flower, and their smell takes me right back to my teenage years. I enjoyed reliving some of those memories as I created this necklace.

Heading to a holiday party for my husband's company tonight, and need something a little festive. I think these will do. πŸ˜‰

I'm finding all sorts of uses for PVC pipe! This makes a great way to keep track of all of my chasing tools. Now, to stop getting distracted and actually put these tools to work! πŸ˜‰

Wait... What's that up in the sky? Ahh... seeing the sun feels glorious! It's been a few weeks now... #centralpa #sunnyday #finallythesun

I really happy with how these earrings turned out. They are on my website now, and would be a perfect gift for any music lover!

I'm excited about my new file/saw blade storage. Should make it much easier to find things! Thanks to @interweavecraft

It's blustery, cold and cloudy, but I'm thinking warm and sunny as I'm working on this gardenia, which will become a necklace!

I'm excited about my latest chain, finished with a handmade box clasp. This is a loop in loop chain (where individual closed rings are woven together) woven in a pattern called Thai Weave.
