OCT 8! Heard a wonderful phrase last night : There is a lot to think about , but nothing to worry about. I ordered silver after the Irish Festival when it hit 10.38 an ounce I pounced. Today is thinking of the best uses for it to get return revenue and of course buy more silver and some gold.
I am going to check into the work shed and do measurements at the house. Once I have the measurements the guy says I can get a useable work studio in 2-3 weeks or even less. Eventually it will be solar powered. I love that idea and there are point of use water heaters 9 gallons of hot water plugs into normal outlet 120v and only 239 usd. I think technology ROCKS. lol
My acetylene tank is near empty so I think for now I will leave it and when the studio is build I can put it in a ton of insulation and run a power cord from the house to run a space heater. Have to check safety issues with acetylene air torch and space heaters. The unit will be large 12×24 feet minimum so I may be able to keep them 24 feet apart. Best to check.
off to design some Celtic findings and such t osell to others on etsy. gonna give it a try!
I was a computer whiz kid of the seventies. A car accident and Traumatic Brain Injury in Dec 1999 changed everything. The only complete skill knowledge left to me was my college education. Fine Art (sculpture) and Archaeology(Paleontology).
The neurologists said that if I did not regain technical memory in 2 years that I would not likely regain it. Jan 1st , 2001 I picked up paper and pencil (I still had blurred & doubled vision) and began drawing.
My style has always been best described as gestorial. Aggressive , fast, and emotional. Animals are my best subjects.
Health only allows me to sculpt in miniature at this time so I began carving cameos.
I take raw Sea Shell and rough Gemstone Materials and carve them into cameos. When it states ‘hand-carved’ It means I use hand gravers to set into the cameo every line every contour.
The school in Italy (Torre del Greco) helped me via students e- mails(ty guys!). I am not a master carver…yet. I may never be a master carver, but I will keep learning and carving. The school thinks I show potential. Not bad for self taught using 2 antique tools and a prayer.
I went to silversmithing classes and jewelry repair classes. I am a certified jewelry repair technician which means that I am learning bench work and repairs. I fell in love with working silver and other metals all over again!
Rules never give up! There are always options! Treat Every Stranger as a Friend!
