everyone needs a flex-shaft!

and if you have to ask what that is, nevermind!

setting up the workbench

i was a good girl today and unpacked most of my boxes for my jewelry work. it was a trip down memory lane, unwrapping all the tools and some finished pieces ...

easter 1996

that's my little copper easter egg, which i made in '96. i made it to hide in penland's easter egg hunt. i finished the egg with enough time to submit it for hiding, but i couldn't part with it. yes, i kept the egg, and then went on the hunt and found two more!

early easter

the ceramic egg was made by jenny drum, and the glass egg was made by joe nielander. it's hard to believe that was 10 years ago. i don't think i want to think about that.

i want to start making jewelry again, in some capacity. i need a table to put next to my workbench, infront of the window, so i can solder. i will have to make some trips to the local thrift store and hope i find something that i can use. i also need some flux. i don't know if i can buy any locally though. otherwise, i have all the materials i need to pick up where i left off. oh, i also need some confidence. i haven't done this in a very long time.
