I'm not much for New Year's resolutions, but I really do mean to post to this poor neglected blog more often in 2009.
We never go anywhere on New Year's Eve, and last night we had a good excuse with the snowstorm and all. I took the opportunity to go downstairs and do some serious hammering, sawing, etching, and bezel-ing, and here's the result -- an etched silver cross with a green turquoise oval bezel set in fine silver. Exhausted from my efforts -- I've got another really bad cold -- I retreated early to bed with my laptop and a stack of art books, and took advantage of the holiday free shipping sale at Thunderbird Supply, placing orders for more silver and definitely more turquoise cabochons. It's been a wonderful holiday season, but I'm really okay with it coming to an end so we can move on to all the good things 2009 will surely bring.
