Just one of the fabulous (NOT) nights.
Sleep decided it wasn't going to cooperate so at 3:47AM I started waking up and looking at the clock. Went to the living room couch with my book, that didn't help. Went back to bed, that helped a little. But with an early morning, sometimes you're able to squeeze out a little art before you start your two show day at the theatre.
On my bench yesterday I had just gotten the Tourmaline for my new little friend - Mr. Owl. I had drilled and prepped the holes yesterday so that's what I put up to finish. When my bestie Susan saw it at work today she started oooooing and ahhhhhing and explained to her visiting parents, - Sandy doesn't do cute. And she's right! My pieces are usually more dramatic but at the same time more subtle than this little guy. He's been so much fun having on my bench that I might have to make him some friends. He'll be on his way to his new owner soon but here he is along with some production shots.
I started my journey into jewelry making in 2005 while I was working in the Berkshires in Massachusetts, an area inundated with amazing artisans. I started with glass, which led to silver, which led to inlay, which led to joy.
