a life creative
Another Monday…in fact, a whole week has come and gone in the Renaissance city and I haven’t blogged – shock horror.
I had planned to write day by day but, aside from boring the pants off everyone, I find the prospect of posting every day pretty much a chore. After a hard day’s fiddling with silver and coming home at 9pm, I want a beer and a good book, or a wine and a film, or any combination thereof.
Rather than bore you with minutiae or quips about ubiquitous drunken foreign university students and their innate tours of Florentine gutters, here are the photos from the jewellery classes of last week.
The ‘scroll’ ring is just a play on embellishing an otherwise plain convex ring – more or less a practice. Scroll further down and you’ll see the beginnings of my wedding ring…
I have another jewellery class or two up my sleeve for later in the week and just today I’ve begun the Printmaking Sisters’ course. Tomorrow morning, Florentine time, I’ll post what’s happening at Il Bisonte.
In the meantime, aside from keeping the Italian economy afloat [via handbags, boots, handmade sandals and sterling silver and precious stone supplies], I’m zipping along in my creative groove. I’ll be balancing it out with a little ‘hard’ work [and a mountain breather] in the enoteca back in Santa Fiora over the weekend.
