End of July Update: We're Moving!

Starting next weekend, we'll be even busier than usual: My family is moving out of our apartment and into a house!  We're very excited for the extra space, backyard, and the design possibilities. 

My posts for the next month will probably be sporadic at best, lacking at worst.  My apologies, but hopefully near the end of August or sometime in September I'll be back up and running again! 

I'm thinking that post subjects may drift toward money-saving, DIY decorating ideas and projects.  I've wanted to try some things out for a while, and now I have a home with the space and option to do them!  If you have any ideas or good websites/blogs to check out, please comment with the website - I have a few but am always looking for more!

Happy Creating!

Jewelry Woodworkers of DA

I'm delving into the wood realm of jewelry making again, with the help of my brother.  He has the woodshop, while I have the jewelry designs.  Maybe when I have a piece completed, I'll post it here for you to see!

My collaboration project had me wondering what other wood jewelry was out there.  To find out, I searched DeviantArt for some notable jewelry that emphasized or featured wood, and found these amazing artists! 

If you enjoyed looking at these pieces, you should check out the artists' DeviantArt galleries for more (links above)!  Some work almost exclusively with wood, while a couple others also work with metal or even 2D art forms, such as drawing, painting, etc.  You can also search through DeviantArt for other great artists that I didn't have room to include here.
