Trying to think of something new to say after all these years is quite difficult and time consuming. Will you be better off for it? Will I?
I've been making jewelry for well-over 30 years. Ok, I need to update that! Later.
I've begun a new line recently and you can find it here: HauteSteampunk a cultural phenomenon that has grabbed me... fits right in with bullet jewelry and the spinner series, a few of which are here... now making a comeback in a new light and venue.
So now I'm teaching. It's very rewarding and the enthusiasm of students is exciting... join me! Or learn it yourself... if you have the time and you have autodidact tendencies. If so take the next step and come to class with "me me ".
Despite the lack of education in high school (Taos)... I LOVE to learn. I'm an autodidact simply because I want to know how to do... everything! Yet I remain an artistic old hippie in sheep's clothing, without a leader. Though some nights I come out as a wolf. Best not to wear red capes and hoodies around me... when the moon is full and I'm feeling frisky.
I "herd" chickens, eat their eggs, and have 3 cats to catch mice to bring them in for show and tell. I cut my own wood and grow some food as a side dish. I'm a bit of a "radical" (to go to the root) freedom loving paleo anarchist (original meaning: absence of government).
If people let government decide what foods they eat and what medicines they take, their bodies will soon be in as sorry a state
as are the souls of those who live under tyranny." - Thomas Jefferson
