Hummingbird

This picture was taken in a friend’s backyard near Sunriver, OR.  The hummingbirds were zipping here and there and everywhere.  I waited about an hour to shoot this picture.  It’s harder than you think to get a picture of a hummingbird.  Well, it was worth the...

This necklace is two pieces of colored glass soldered together.  The dimensions are roughly an inch by an inch and a half.  Again, the soldering at the top is just so tricky.  My goal for the month of May is to practice more soldering.  It will be a happy day when I have mastered the...

This picture was taken on the Oregon Coast near Tillamook. Greg and I discovered this beach by taking a scenic road that meanders along the coast line. There was not a soul to be seen. It was a bit stormy, but really that’s pretty good for the Oregon Coast. We came across these rocks while walking. We walked a little further and heard shots being fired. It turns out there is a lake on the other side of the beach and two men were...

Here is a necklace that I made a few years ago. I made this exact same necklace in purple, white, and green. It’s 16 inches long so it’s perfect to wear with almost anything. My intend with these beads (and so many more beads that I will show later on) was to make a bunch of necklaces that I would (in a perfect world) sell and make millions of dollars and retire at age 35. Well, as of yet, none of my plan has actually been...

So I tend to fancy myself as a photographer. This is a picture I took on the Washington Coast. It’s one of my very favorites. Although this blog is meant to be a craft blog, I also want to showcase some of my favorite photos. I’m hoping this will force me to get out my camera more often. I haven’t worked with any touch up software. I’m a purist when it come to that sort of thing. I think the picture should...

Posted on Apr 11, 2005

So here is a necklace that I made. I love Celtic knots and took a class a few years back with my mom to learn how to draw them. It turns out it’s pretty simple. It’s one of the most productive classes I have ever taken because I can’t seem to stop drawing Celtic knots. This one is sandwiched between glass and then I soldered the edges. Soldering is also pretty simple, except for attaching the loop at the top to turn...
