I don't care how well off you are, we are all feeling it.
Who the hell do I write a scathing letter to, anyway?
Who decides what the price is? Is it the same people who decide the fuel?
Can we just agree to send a secret assassination team to do away with them and replace them with clones of Tim McCreight and who ever started Rio Grande?
(I'm convinced these 2 people are looking out for my best interests)
Has anyone tried silver filled wires for soldering yet?
I miss working with the bright sparkle and the matte dark grey.
Now on to other more depressing news.
Something has been wrong with the email account that the slevart.etsy.com jewelry store was connected to. I missed 2 sales and numerous convos because of this and still haven't figured it out. I do not receive notices and I am logged into missficklemedia all the time so I have no idea what is happening in the other store front unless I remember to check it but I can never remember to.
I think as soon as I can pay off my bill, I will just list a few jewelry pieces here on my blog. Just the most special that shouldn't be put away in bags or sold across a counter without an explanation.
Pieces I need to talk about.
When I saw copper in a stone for the first time, I was amazed at how natural it looked, almost like the stone itself. The layering effects of patinas on these simple hammered strips of brass give the same organic metal look as the copper embedded stone. The natural aging effect metal has in the ground changes the hues of the rock around it.
I love that.
