It’s a hot, rainy, humid summer and everything is growing wild. The natural prairie that surrounds me is in full bloom. By the end of July and into August that prairie usually is dry, crunchy and brown but not this summer. It’s green and full of life. Every square inch of it has something living on it: flowers, weeds, butterflies, grasshoppers, ants, toads…Absolutely Beautiful! This is where I live on a Wild Prairie. So, here I am trying to share with you a small piece of my business and what I am up to and how I make things.
I love metal. I am also a bit of a pyromaniac. These two traits make a metalsmith.
I really never stop thinking about it. I even dream about it.
I make jewelry from silver, gold, copper and bronze. Now and again I get into some large piece with steel or stainless steel.
I love tools. Especially hammers. I love how a hammer can change a piece of metal into anything really, moving molecules one hammer blow at a time. I hope I get to work for a long time ~ until I am very old. I have a lot to learn.
