Endless Possibilities



This is my second week playing with fire and already I am getting better. Taking Stephanie Lee's class was something I never in a million years thought I would be doing. In fact I would even venture to say it is out of my comfort zone. Way out! I had a few moments of panic buying the supplies thinking there is no way in the world I am going to enjoy this or be able to keep up using all of the tools. But here I am. Filing, cutting, heating and sometimes burning things. It has been more fun than I could have possibly imagined. My pieces aren't perfect but I would rather think of them having that rustic earthy look. I think it is fun to take a look of my progression in photos so when I have my completed pieces in the end I will see just how far I came. They really do have their own unique beautiful looks in every stage. Also a side note: I may not share all of the completed projects on here until after Christmas because a few people that read this blog may just get a little hand-made something under the tree this year.

  1. I think the imperfections give them great character, I am so happy you are sharing this journey with us. I love seeing all of the results and I can't wait to see more!

  3. Celina...looks like so much fun. I was getting ready to take some classes like these before I moved from Portland. I'm so jealous! I can't wait to see how they turn out. I miss crafting with you!!

  4. These pieces, even "empty" and not totally completed, are simply beautiful. I am inspired by you and your adventure in metalworks. Bravo!!! xoxo
