It’s been a few months since I’ve written an entry, not that I think anyone is actually reading this…is anyone actually reading this? Anyway, it’s true. Long time-y no write-y. Been busy. No really, I’ve been busy. I’ve renovated my kitchen in our home in Roslindale MA, did beaucoup landscaping projects and really enjoyed the summer. During that time, I stepped away from the bench for a few weeks, to allow myself a breather. Refreshed myself and my love of the work by not taking part in it. Kind of a reverse delayed gratification.
In truth, I’d not stopped working at jewelry design, just not at the bench. I worked on sketches of new designs, played with ideas, read about technique…took time for other things that feed me just as much as putting my hands to metal. Since returning to my chair at the bench, I’ve produced a number of items that I’ll share in the next few posts.
