they are kindly trying everything they can to help me channel all my
insane ideas.  My husband loved the pictures.
“oh! that’s so cool”  he said.  What can I tell you the guy is pretty
boyish, he likes everything that involves fire, metal, burned wood and

  • How exciting, can't wait to see your designs

  • Out of chaos, comes beauty! Keep working away with the hammers, saws, torches, and molten metal; a phoenix is sure to emerge.

    Please share the end result. It just all looks like so much fun (we love the tools of creation) we are super jealous.

  • I'm anxious to see your designs, Julie. As for the photos, I'm always inspired by workshops, anything involving creativity.

  • I did not know that much work was needed to make jewelry. Keep up the good work!
