stumped

105 is coming along nicely. Since there is foot traffic over at Western Ave Studios I decided to take the time to put my tools on display so visitors can a glimpse at my jewelry making process. This took a lot planning as I need it to be functional and aesthetically pleasing. After some work days I wonder why I hadn't done this sooner. Not only does seeing my tools make me want to use them more creatively, but it also gives a better flow to my work process. 

my rolling mill has been installed on my favorite stump!

I wanted my dapping tools (not seen are mandrels and a hammer) handy.

a thrifted leather belt and some screws did the trick.

I have made leaps and bounds in my progress. Rather than inundate you with one long post I will check in with more updates.

enjoy summer's end!
