Just wanted to fill you in on what I actually studied while I was away: a triple layer 'story' cuff that blew my mind and gave me more challenge and teeth gritting than I thought possible.
That's what it's a class, you know?
New torch with a tip that made a burly flame and more heat than I am used to working with
(or shall I say 'actual' techniques, as my self-taught shenanigans are rather unpolished)
The rhythm of questions and progress
chasing tools (more, yes, please!!!)
Liver of sulphur (never going back to silverblack)
forming with a bracelet mandrel
Magnesium brazing boards
pins to hold the work
So glad I had the experience.
So glad I am home.
As for custom orders, I am plumb out of silver sheet, and so I will be waiting until the 3rd for it.
Being that I am traveling to Seattle and slowly down the coast with Les Parents from August 11th through the 20th (I am singing at a wedding in Morton, WA and my parents happened to be traveling my way!!)
it makes little sense to start more orders before I go, meaning delays and and designs on the brain when I should be away and refilling the well.
Custom listings will be up on the 21st of August: maybe even a few in the Leather shop!!!
This is the last travel for some time until December, so normalcy will return soon :)
Thanks for understanding and for being so darn great.
