I know the weekends are for resting, but....


I made a Turquoise sunset ring (complete with cloud shaped band in 8.25!)
and a pair of prehnite leaf earrings -



I couldn't help it.
This is what happens when your job is also your ultimate joy - the line becomes fine
and is often crossed....

I am trying to make rules for myself, like no convos on weekends, and no working on weekends and all manner of wise and well-saving guidedposts, but I love
 the feel 
of

Leather
Silver
Stones
Rivets
Tools

I love the sound of

Hammers
Metal against Mandrels
my Radio
The Avett Brothers
My rivet press
My own breath
Thoughts
Birds bathing above me in the eaves

I love the sight of

Solder making a run for it
Leather knife cuts becoming 3 dimensional
Antique on my hands and sponge
The venerable Ikea kitchen island that serves as my table 
(soon I will have two - one for each discipline)
many convos full of friendship
and questions

I don't know any better conundrum to have, quite frankly!

I am off to try and relax with a good book, but my stones are still calling with all their might (did I mention that I got a large Machinist's Toolbox with felt lined drawers (8 of them - drawers that is!!) to store all of my cabochons in?? Yeeeehaw!!!!)

Resistance is futile!
