Mixed Metal Jewelry

It's actually fairly amazing that I still like making jewelry after having done it for almost 5 decades.
Part of the enjoyment is the game like play that I make it, always searching for new ideas, tricks, variations, techniques and so forth. I saw early on that if I didn't make it into something that was enjoyable in an ongoing way that I would not be able to do it for a long time. Also continuing to make different forms lets longtime customers find something to acquire that is different from the pieces that they have already purchased. Such a high percentage of our sales at shows are to people that have bought before.

I am certainly enjoying being semi retired, it is very relaxing. Only 4 more fairs for the rest of the year. That's a big change for us.

I still have another picture collage I'm working on of our most recent work just finished in the last few days. I'll get it posted in a few days, some interesting pieces.
