So what has been keeping me busy lately?
Well... last fall we bought a lot of goodies to use in our shop - some of them are not working yet as I'm still looking for a teacher to show me how to silversmith (in our area).. That should give you a hint of what we found last year..
Rob has been busy most of the winter putting together and gathering tools for his side of the business. He's the rock cutter, the polisher and the grinding man. He's been in and out most of the winter working on creating these fabulous Jade free form pieces.. as well as grinding away in our kitchen (can you say EAR PLUGS!?).. it's been a long winter, let me tell you.. but he's getting good at it.
So far, I've managed to keep him away from the pretty fire agates and other sparkling goodies that really need care and time to create something... Well, truth be told, I really want to start playing with those. I wonder if he would notice if I tucked them away and hid them until I was ready..
