Better Late than never

I seem to never get a chance to post on my Blog like I used to...I'm going to try to be better in 2017. I have been busy with several projects, one is honing my skills with metal stamps. I found a few awesome sites on Facebook that sell, and better yet give tips and video's on how to use metal stamps. One of my favorite forums is a guy who is 5th generation Navajo, he is so full of information and stories and great Navajo jewelry. Most of my stamps I am buying from his makers and all the stamps are hand carved...beautiful and high quality. If you jump into one of my metal classes I am sure you will be using a few of these.

New Year ...2015

I know it's been such a long time since I have posted but life has thrown me for a loop and I am trying to make sense of it all and I am finding it difficult. I normally post my New Years resolution about this time and I was sitting here thinking of what I will do differently in the new year...hmmm I think this year I will go easy on myself and make my resolution about being kinder to people and to stop taking so much for granted, I have certainly learned...Life is short.

I want to thank my family and friends for all the love and support that has been gifted to me over the past several months. I know I never be able to repay everyone for all that they have done for me and will need you all in the coming months for sure...this next year will be one of the most difficult years of my life. I am planning on getting back to teaching next month and back to my work at the Senior Center....I couldn't have gotten through this without you all.

What a Fun Class

Today was the copper skull class and what a fun class. The ladies all did such a great job and learned so many techniques in this class. Thanks Ronna for taking the photo of all the skulls...you girls are really experts in riveting by now.

Great Deal

This post is for all my students or anybody who own Lindstrom tools. I have had the same 5 pairs of Lindstrom tools for going on 20 years and using them nearly every day of those years. They have allowed me to make hundreds of great jewelry pieces but after all the years of so much use the grips were staring to fall off every time I picked them up, I couldn't keep the springs on them any more and OMG the state of the tips on all the tools looks very worn...I'm talkin big chucks of metal out of the cutters and bent round nose tips so bad they didn't meet together all the way.
A few weeks ago I sent all 5 pairs in to Lindrom and had them reconditioned and WOW!! they look brand new and beautiful. We all know that each pair of pliers or cutters will run you about $55-$65 each and who can afford to have them replaced? granted I have been using mine for nearly 20 years and so you know they must be high quality to get as many years of heavy use as I did before I found out I could get them reconditioned like new for only $10.00 a pair, that's $55.00 for ALL 5 pairs.
