Visages and Views
I have made a variety of things in my workshop lately and have some in the works for this blog, but in the mean time, I thought I'd share some of my portfolio of photographs. I am trying to branch out into more professional work and I just purchased a new c...

Music to My Ears Part 2
If anyone is actually following my blog, they might remember a post I made a number of years ago called "Music to My Ears Part 1." I originally started this post as a work in progress post for refurbishing my sister's half size guitar. Unfortunately, I neve...

Black Beauty
As a writer, I have a love of a good notebook and as a creator, I love a good handmade objects. If you've read my blog you know where this is going, but for those of you who are new, when I decide I like something, I typically think "I could make that." Hen...

Summertime Madness
It's been several months since I posted, but I had to go through the drudgery of Spring semester and finals. Now that that's done, I'm free to go about my work I've been neglecting. My biggest project right now is a knife I've had in the works for probably ...

Portraits, Words, and Places
I said two posts ago that I was working on some portraits because I tend to take too many pictures of things and not people. I promised and now I'm going to deliver. Here is my latest work in the workshop and with the camera. The first subject is my girlfri...

Sunsets, Scenery, and People
I've posted some pictures before, so I'll just leave a few here. I really enjoy the art of photography, particularly film, but I'm not solely interested in it. Digital is fine for what I like to do and usually I do a side-by-side of digital and film.  These...

Closing Projects and Prongs
In my previous post, you saw my rough pendant that I'd been working on in silver. Recently I got a shipment of white sapphires from Thailand to finish up this project. Before the jewels came, I also received a very nice silver box chain for the pendant. Aft...

"The Lord has turned my mourning into dancing!"
If you've seen previous postings here, you'll have seen some of my casting attempts. Sad to say I've been working on casting metal for approximately two or three years and only recently have I had any substantial success. I wear a silver ring on my right ha...

Knot What You Were Expecting, Hmm?
I just finished up this little box. I don't quite recall where I got the original from. Probably my sisters. It was a simple jewelry box with a glass top. The glass cracked in two and the outer frame that had just been glued popped apart. I drilled, pinned,...
