I've trying to come up with a new creature design currently but don't know what it will be. The other thing I've wanted to do for a while is a piece that is a musical instrument. I've started working on one and it looks as if it's going to be a cello hybrid of some sort. We'll see. Sometimes designs develop a mind and direction of their own.

Thinking about earrings makes me think of a time 40 plus years ago when I made my first solder constructed set that were asymmetrical. I displayed them at a fair and the first woman who asked about them sat looking at them for a couple of minutes and then said to me, " you know, they are supposed to be opposites, the one for my left ear should be the reverse of the one for the right". Well, I can't recall a time of feeling more stupid for having made them exactly the same, but I then made two opposites and ended up with two pair which both sold very shortly so it turned out OK.
