Can you believe 2019 is already here?! I am spending some time journaling and reflecting. For me, this past year has been filled with a lot of challenge, loss, and change. I am so grateful to be surrounded by incredible people who have shown me and my husband endless love and support throughout these challenges. This year has taught me what it means to be resilient.
This short survey was generated to identify which fluxes are being used by jewelers and metalsmiths internationally. The survey was used as an indication not only of which fluxes were being used, but also whether the safety and sustainability of flux was a concern.
I am so excited to share that this awesome collaboration has come to life! We have teamed up with Ethical Metalsmiths Students and Queensland College of Art, Griffith University Australia.
The weather is shifting & so should your menu, makers! Remember, ingredients that are in season taste better, are less expensive, & are more environmentally friendly! Here is a recipe to help you transition into winter with ease. Being busy is a go-to excuse to eat poorly, but that is when you need wholesome nutrition the most! Along with the change in seasons come sniffling noses and harsh coughs. This meal will provide your badass body with the necessary tools to combat any germs that come your way. Creating this dish requires minimal effort, but you will enjoy the leftovers for days.
Last Spring, Lucy Derickson from Ethical Metalsmith Students reached out to me to see how our organizations could potentially collaborate. I knew right away that we would be a great match. So we teamed up and started looking for schools that would be interested in conducting research to benefit our field of makers.
