Still working on it…

I think I talked in a previous post about trying to improve my wire wrapping skills.  It is harder than you might think.  Especially for earrings because you have the same issues as pendants- Wiggly wire that can be unforgiving about holding it too tight (finish scratches) or working too long (gets harder to manipulate until it is impossible); and then pray that you can a second pair flipped so that they mirror with all the same contortions.   If you have a jig which is-like a peg board and pin thingy- your squiggles can be perfect, but I think they look, I don’t know- too obviously assisted?  Like your cheating somehow.  

Anyway, I have some “new” pairs of earrings that did not make the quality control cut, but are too pretty to junk.  My daughter also received a practice pair.  Like all physical skills practice practice practice, and also it helps if you can afford the $50 jewelry tool instead of a $8 tool, like most tools you are going to get what you pay for.  (Sigh) some day I will have nice tools available.   

In the meanwhile I can manage a fair to middlin’ pendant technique with the pendant wraps if I keep it simple.  I have been searching (in town) for the right chains for the pendants, but I think I will have to go on line since there are no shiny silver chains of sufficient heft.  They kinda go from dainty-to-manly-to giant freakin dog chain in the stores, and I need something that will feel like it is safely holding a 1.5 X 2 inch stone that is purple. It is crazy lace Agate.  But clearly I need stronger than dainty, and less than MANLY chain.  


This is the reality of small time jewelry business, you get and idea, start it, and then go “oh crap I need an X and I only have some Y’s and Z’s.  Then you put it aside until the right type of X in your price range comes into view.  

I have a necklace that I am just completing that I had the idea and beads for 2.5 years ago.  Last month I found the right chain so I put it mostly together, and yesterday I bought a clasp that might (iffy) work.  I am so damn picky and cost conscious at the same time.  Keeps me in that moderate price point, and it’s nice for the buyer;  but I am the biggest pain in MY ass, can’t just say “good enough” and let it go.

Paper artist: Diana Beltran Herrera

The Cornell Fine Arts Museum will display seven sculptures by Diana Beltran Herrera. The works are completely made of paper and feature local bird species. The project is a CFAM collaboration with the Latin American Student Association, the Department of Biology, and the Department of Environmental Studies at Rollins College.

Herrera’s work seeks to explore the chillingly disengaged relationship between humans and nature in modern society. Using paper as her primary medium she is able to present notions of temporality and change, emphasizing the process of transformation that continuously occurs in nature as well as humankind.
