Real Life

On the way to school and home again........
Azaleas are beginning to bloom around town.

..and grass is turning green

Construction work is blooming too...

Here's the art center at the college....

More night pines after class. The campus was a beautiful forest of pines before Hurricane Ivan.

I found my pendant pieces. They still need to be polished, riveted together, and an attachment for hanging added.

My work bench at school - would be nice to have one in the kitchen at home!

The dreaded solder - notice the solder (silver) pooled in the bottom of the ring. I figured it out today, had a successful solder, now I have to work in real silver - that's kind of scary.

All the pieces - the ring at the end of the day had the extra copper sawed off, making an edge on the ring.

Home again, and who would think housework could be so much fun? Recent photo minus 30 pounds, still have that much to go, maybe more. Can't open my eyes for new camera as I know it has a super bright flash.

That's that for today!

Gorgeous woman making a gorgeous pendant! Great for you that you lost 30 pounds...I need to lose 30 kilos! But I cannot be bothered at the moment. Maybe before the summer I'll try and lose something here and there, 10 kilos off my belly would be good.

I love that piece of jewellery, really. I'd buy it off you! It is really very, very beautiful.
