Most people don't think about how time consuming putting all the packages together can be. here are a few photos to show you the process. First I print out all the labels. Than I attach them to the bubble mailers while marking the orders on the envelopes. Back at the studio I open all the boxes and measure each ring and make a little note of their size while placing them in their box. From there I need to match product with orders. And the final touches include business cards and a little treat. Then it is off to the post office. All in all it can take about 3 hours during the holidays.
I currently have a bit of time before I start a new corporate day job. This is the view from my current office (bed room). I am in no hurry to start the new job.
Pushed my comfort zone on this one and surprised myself that I pulled it off. I am always amazed at what I can do once I try.
Don't get me wrong. I am a fan of tattoos in general. They can be a beautiful piece of art. Like all art there are some bad pieces out there and that is unfortunate. I enjoy seeing great art no matter it's form. However there is still a taboo attached to body modifications including the common tatoo. Because of this I was taught that if you were going to have a tattoo then to put it in a place that is easily hidden. Whenever I see knuckle tattoos I cringe a little at the judgment that person must get. I have rarely seen one that I would approve of. However I am totally in love with this one. It speaks to who he is and what he does. Not only is he obviously a maker but I am sure his work is done well.
Here is a new piece I am really excited about. I think we will be seeing more like this. What do you think?
Here is a sneak peek at at a few pendants that I am working on. They are currently mid process but it gives you a bit of an idea of where I am at creativly. These will all be one of a kind pieces.
I have been think very hard about what kind of things I should talk about here. of course most of it will be about jewelry probably as that is a large part of what this site is about. However it is not the only thing. This site is also about my work and therefor me and my feelings. Because I put a little bit of myself and my soul into each piece I make. So moving forward I hope that these little glimpses into my life are as entertaining to you as they are to me. Please enjoy.
