Approaching Normal

Wow...another weekend with nothing to do...I love these weekends. Of course I'll spend the entire weekend working on jewelry.

I read an article by Luann Udell "Approaching Normal...but never quite getting there" in Crafts Report. She asks questions like..."Do other artists buy more beads than they could possibly use in a lifetime"...I think she's seen my bead stash..."Do other artists buy weird stuff like odd rusty metal"....have you seen the drawer pulls I bought in Tucson...."Do other artists go years without cleaning their studio, working around towering piles of materials, only cleaning when forced to by an impending studio tour".... it was a cute article. If you get a it. Check out her website. She makes some very cool prehistoric sculptures and mixed media pieces.

Also check out Donna Mehnert's new studio.....I am soooo jealous....really happy for her but sooo jealous :) Someday I'll post some pics of my room.... it's more like the towering piles of materials all over the place that Luann mentioned.

And here's a tribute to Steve Irwin.....

Thanks for the tips on bronze clay. I'm going to work with it some more and see what happens. I love the pieces you've made! Very ancient relic!
