Work started to get stressful again or should I say still; it is just a matter of degrees. In the evening and during the weekend I did not want to think that hard and be so careful in what I did. Trust me, weaving is more forgiving than hammering metal; and when weaving down at the barn I was socializing and really getting my mind off of things while most of my metal work is solitary.
I hadn't raised a hammer in over 6 months. I was even stressing over the thought of just walking away from it all --- and selling all my equipment off.
Then on Friday night - after a very long week at work, while driving home suddenly into my head pops the idea of making some napkin rings in sterling silver.
NAPKIN RINGS - wha? Where the frack did that come from!!!
And in a flood of thoughts I was seeing synclastic and anaclastic shapes; some were just planished in an Arts & Crafts kinda way; others smooth; and some with Celtic knots done in Chasing & Repousse.
So this morning I ordered a huge amount of silver and began working on a few designs to use.
