As some of you know I am re-vamping my jewelry shop. I’m starting to sell off beads and findings and things at my supply shop. I’ll be making glass pendants and wire wrapped bracelets now. Intricate beading is much too hard as my hands have a bitch of a time hanging on to the tiny parts.
I have been so excited as I thought of another type of jewelry to make for my shop, stamping. I purchased an amazing set to get me started.
Well… here’s where the other shoe drops! I can’t do it. I’m not strong enough to hammer the lil buggers hard enough to get a good indentation. WTF!!! Every time I get all positive and excited something fucks it up! Mainly, MS fucks it up! I even tried a heavier hammer to no avail. If I go any heavier I’m afraid I’ll pound off my thumb. 😛 And stupid me bought more blanks BEFORE I tried it out. DOH! I really felt that I could do this and expand my jewelry design. I was all stoked and ready to do awareness pieces…hmmm!! Oh well, I won’t give up right away as I can be relentless. Just don’t expect to see any of this type of jewelry any time soon…
Well, I’m off to hide under my covers and scream!
