I've Sure Missed Keeping Up With Everyone! Especially My Special Facebook Friends! But I Promise I Haven't Been Sitting On My Hands. I've Been Back At My Work Benches And Have Managed To Put Together Several New Designs. Some Of Them Cut And Forged From Sterling Sheet; Others From Recycled PMC.
Y'all, I've Been Havin' The Time Of My Life With A New Toy I've Recently Acquired..An Early Christmas Present From My Personal Santa..a.k.a. My Sweet Husband. It's Something I've Wanted For So Very Long! A Kiln. This One Is An Evenheat Studio Pro. A Small Tabletop Model, But Perfect For My Needs.
This Newest Cuff Was Formed From Silver Sheet...then Meticulously Hand Stamped With A Beautiful Calligraphy Font. I Chose A Sweet Inscription By The Author Louisa May Alcott. It Reads: "Far away in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them and try to follow where they lead."
I've Just Started To Personally Mark My Pieces And Enjoyed Using My New "T SMITH" Stamp For The First Time With This Piece.
Closing For Now - Hope Everyone Enjoyed A Beautiful Holiday!
