Happy New Year - it's the beginning of a new decade of peace, learning, sharing, and the joy it brings. Since the Holidays are officially drawing to to a close I thought it would be safe to reveal another custom piece I did for a friend.
Another masculine piece for a man. It's was so fun to do something outside my box of usual tricks.
I fashioned the leather band and added loads of studs. I then added the watch to the band. I really like it and think I may do another one.
Thank you, Lynette for requesting this watch. With every creation I learn a little more - the best part of making things with my hands is to challenge my fingers and mind. Is that why women who make things with their hands are so darn clever? Me thinks this is the reason. Who needs soduku puzzles to keep their mind sharp when playing with paper, leather, clay, and tools is so much better???
Yesterday, I went to Lowe's and purchased more plastic bins for my studio. I wanted to start the year off with an organized studio. After the Holiday rush, it was no stretch to call it a disaster in there. It felt so good to get things put away, clearing the table tops and floor once again! Yes, between the custom work and making gifts for family and friends - it was a huge mess.
I like a bit of chaos, but WOW - that was out of control. It was time to reorganize the use of the space. So, much better. Now I can get back to work...busy hands are happy hands in my house. Am I the only one who can destroy a studio???
