The holiday season is looming and the busiest time for a working metalsmith. These past few weeks have been filled with sawing, soldering, forging and guilding.
I was contemplating today, how lucky I am to be able to play out different moods with my work. Sometimes I like bright and modern, other times cool and minimalistic. This past week brought out the moody, mysterious work once again and how satisfying it was to revisit these elements that are rough and textured, yet refined with a delicious touch of decadent gold to bring out the light from the shadows. How lucky am I?
