I’m totally failing at keeping this journal updated. Life has changed in ways I wasn’t expecting and it’s had an effect on my feelings about how I’ll be continuing on with Birds of Prey in the days to come. I don’t foresee a time when I will stop doing this completely, but other opportunities have come along that will require my attention as well. My current thought on this is that I will continue doing what I do, but not full time. I haven’t quite flushed out what that looks like though.
I’ve been at this for over 8 years now and I love it, I really do. I’ve also gotten older in those 8 years and being a metalsmith is hard on ones body. I unfortunately inflicted a lot of damage on my body over the years and it’s all catching up with me. So sitting in a chair in the position I have to to work, well, isn’t totally working for me. Plus, if I’m being totally honest, I had my makers heart broken a bit this year over a project and it took the wind out of my sails so to speak.
So yeah, I’m just trying to figure this all out right now. There’s some really cool things on the horizon in my life, so this isn’t all bad, just more trying to explain what’s going on around here. I will have my work exclusively at High Desert Home, in Yucca Valley and will continue to sell things from my Etsy and direct shop. I appreciate the love and support I’ve received over these past 8 years. This is not the end, but a change of pace.

This weekend, tomorrow in fact, there’s a Bikes and Buggies event going down at High Desert Home, in Yucca Valley. There’ll be tacos, beer, good people and bikes and buggies. If you’re near here, you should go! I’ve got several pieces down there too, including this one that I made especially for High Desert Home.

After close to a year, I have added new pieces to my SHOP. It only took me a week to mention it here, if that tells you anything about my days of late. Just over here making the magic happen.
Here’s one of said pieces. Ocean Jasper and silver goodness.
