#PicsFromTheBench

MOST RECENT

I've been decidedly absent from social media in the last week, but for good reason! 馃敤馃挕馃敡 I've been busy in the shop creating new collections! 鉁煉嶁湪I've been so involved with it that I took this yesterday for #MarchMeetTheMaker for the theme Organized and got lost in my creations and missed the post. 馃拵 Whoops! So here it is! 馃寛 I had picked up these colorful rainbow drawers for organizing some projects and it's really helped me to keep down the clutter! I highly recommend them! 馃憜(But is it really organized to forget to post your post about organization??? Lol! Let me know your thoughts in the comments. 馃槂)

Meet the Maker's Helper! 馃惐That's today's theme for #MarchMeetTheMaker and so I have brought you my cat, Mr. Pooh! 馃悎 This guy loves to come into my shop and tell me what to do. He's a good boss! And a good helper! He loves to bonk my chair and tell me when it's time to eat (him) and when it's time for ear scratches (him again 馃槈). Excellent Shop Cat! 馃弳

Today for #MarchMeetTheMaker our theme is How Its Done. 馃拲 Well, these are the tools you need to alloy metal. 鉁煉涒湪 Here, I was alloying 24k Gold to 22k Gold for use in future projects. 馃憫 Things you need: a Seasoned Crucible, Graphite Stir Stick, Rosebud Torch Tip, Torch Lighter, Propane, Oxygen, Metal Mold, Solder Pad, Ventilation, and of course you need the metals, weighed into their proper ratios. You also need Patience and Protective Eyewear!! 馃憮 Badassery: First melt the gold, then melt the silver into the gold, then melt the copper into the mix. Have patience and enjoy the process. 鉁煒嶁湪 Practice, it takes time to master. Its therapeutic and beautiful! 馃檹 Someday I'll get a video of it but for now I will have to settle for just a pic. 馃摲

Today's #MarchMeetTheMaker theme is Photography so I thought I'd show you what my set up looks like. 馃摲 It can be pretty simple! I take high resolution photos with my little camera then upload them on to my computer so I can remove glare and "Rogue Fuzz" from the images and then upload them to my website! 馃拲馃捇 I don't want to edit the actual jewelry image in the photos because I want you to see exactly what you're going to receive when you order a piece of Firefly Jewelry, so it takes a lot of time to get the shot just right with lots of clarity and detail, without any distorting glare from the lighting and any dust that could settle into the photo. 馃挜 Sometimes I use a tripod to catch an image from a different angle, but for these rings I want you to see them from the front so I put my camera right down there with them. 鉁煉庘湪

Here's a good example of what not to do. 1. Using a screw and nut to hold your trigger in place 2. Glue is a poor choice for attaching a trigger guard. #gunsmith #gunrepair #hackjob #fuckery #stepawayfromthedremel #picsfromthebench #gunstuff #guns #gunpics
