This can only end in tears.

For +Shanna Mann, who was curious how loud hammering is. 

Hammering 18ga copper wire... and my thumb.

Thanks! Huh. Not loud at all, but definitely noticeable. You must have cool neighbors :)

Alright. So... two rings and 8 bangles in the tumbler. Sealing those babies tomorrow. Orbits pieces are in the other tumbler, plus a bunch of fine silver ear wires. Will be making Orbits tomorrow, too.

If y'all want Orbits, now's a GREAT time to grab a pair. #JustSayin

Chasing hammer, steel bench block and thumb sandwich. Thumb magically changes color with time, guaranteed to delight your dinner guests!

Just finished hammering one of these pretties, and now that I have obtained coffee, I am off to go work on more bangles.

Bangles without coffee is just asking for hammered fingers. Just sayin'.

I love these rings. 

I've worn one non-stop for weeks, and it's one of the most comfortable rings I have ever worn. If it weren't for reaaaally wanting to wear my engagement ring, I'd still wear one of these all the time.

Amazing what a little bit of polish does. I look like a Lady! (Shhh, don't tell them otherwise.)

Also: Freehand french tips. Aw, yeah.

I reaaaally need to make more of these. Down to my last four pairs, and I just finished those.

Hammered and hand formed fine silver ear wires.

Story
Tagline
Chaos Magician. Not single. Not interested.
Introduction
"Queen of Paints" - +Nikki Crome

Believes in magic & common sense. 

I drink a lot of coffee. 

I swear.

Mistakes and accidents are my forte; chaos is at the center of my heart and soul.

I have three brilliantly amazing children.

I am a life-taught artist - books, other artists, a ton of practice. I'm pretty damn good. 

If I wasn't an artist, I'd be a biochemist. Or psychologist. Or a sociologist. Or writer. Or video game designer. Or in marketing. Or a philosopher. Or a sports coach.  Just not anything in politics. I HATE politics. 

I don't watch TV, and only rarely watch movies. This is by choice, and has nothing to do with free time. If I have free time, it means I need a new hobby!

I consider the Bible an interesting collection of historical metaphors. 

I consider reality relative, subjective. If I say something is the truth or true, this is simply my opinion based on my understanding of events and my observation of the situation. If you tell me something is true, I'm going to assume that your statement is your opinion, as well. If you insist your opinion is truer than mine, I am going to suggest you read some Nietzsche and Julian Jaynes and then get back to me. 
Bragging rights
Internationally collected fine art painter before the age of 30. Have seen Hell, swum in High Water, lived to laugh about both.
