I never spend any time here. Was just searching through communities and there aren't many that interest me (short search but of pertinent categories, pertinent to me that is). Or there are communities but never updated but updated more than six months ago.

Of course, they do say, them's that say it, that slow growth is good growth.

Haven't heard from Bob yet today and never heard from him yesterday. I wonder what that means. He should have known yesterday evening something about his Odyssey and when it could be repaired, if it had already been repaired and so on. So what does it means? Does it mean that I'll get a phone call on Friday, the three of them back in Philly and oh gee whiz what could we do after all (and seeing as you're actually on our way back home and it wouldn't be out of our way to stop for an hour and see you). But really, love you lots.

I guess I am cynical and bitter.

But then I know my family and their talk talk talk.

Made a couple of neat bracelets last night. Took the one chased wedge t-fold I made last term and formed it on the horn of the anvil and wasn't that fun? I plan to attach it to something. And I plan to make more. And I need to take pictures.

Quote of the day: Thus in winter stands the lonely tree,
Nor knows what birds have vanished one by one,
Yet knows its boughs more silent than before:
I cannot say what loves have come and gone,
I only know that summer sang in me
A little while, that in me sings no more. (What lips my lips have kissed, and where, and why (Sonnet XLIII), Edna St. Vincent Millay)

Hard to believe but it's been over a month since I've posted anything here. I've meant to, just haven't gotten around to it. I'm wasting far too much time over at Facebook, playing games. Vampires, for Christ's sake. I'm playing vampires! Why? I don't know.

Art Jewelry has an article on shibuichi. Bought the issue, haven't read the article yet. Did a little web searching. Reactive Metals wants something like $4.62 a square inch for 24 gauge 25% shibuichi. Shit. I've got to get into the shibuichi business. That's some nice markup.

I've been playing with foldforming some rings and bracelets. I linefolded some copper and thought, well, it's nice but it needs something. So started linefolding some sterling to back it with. That shibuichi article got me thinking. Sterling is dull, reticulation silver is too pissy and brittle (and why foldform it anyway), brass and "bronze" are boring, brass especially. Gold is only for the big kids. Oh, but shibuichi, shibuichi would be so pretty coupled with the copper. The patina options are intriguing and--almost--endless.

But $4.62 a square inch! In what universe?

Listen for reply... )

Quote of the day: Harry struggled to keep his voice steady, even as he felt as if his insides had turned to ice. “I know you. You’re Lord Volauvent.”

“Yes! I am the one who killed your parents. I am He Who – Wait. What did you call me?” Voldemort’s eyes narrowed. (Harry's New Home, kbinnz)



I played with the studio in a box last night when I was in the studio. I have a lot to learn about photographing my stuff. At least I've made a start. If anyone else ever shows up on Sundays, I can also offer to take pictures of their stuff. It will give me loads more practice and will cause me to find different solutions than those that might work for my stuff.
