Spring is FINALLY in full force here this week. Last week we went from freezing cold to nearly 90F in just two short days, but now things are settling down to more comfortable and seasonally normal temperatures. Looks like maybe we are done with frosts so I am cautiously putting some young pepper plants out, covering them at night just in case, and trying to get some yard work done in between all these shop projects. We're loving the warm weather and sunshine I can tell you.
As far as projects go, I sent the steel Hangman hooks to heat treat last week so they will be done soon. Steel Ringbabies are now on the bench and steel metric Crawdaddies will follow those. It's good to finally start getting caught up with these steel projects some of which, like the Ringbabies, were cut almost three years ago and have been patiently waiting their turn.
I'm also finishing up some new bead projects this week. I've had some tendonitis and other minor nagging finger issues that have been slowing me down at the grinder and also in tying cord. Stamping tools has been quite difficult lately too because the antique hand stamps all have to be held tightly and at odd angles with my uncooperative fingers. I guess I must be getting old, lol...the good news however is that the 6 Flute Titanium Mega Lanslides are nearly done as well as some Copper Mini 5 Flutes. And, a couple of brand new fluted Mega designs are turning as we speak so there are some interesting items coming up in the bead department.
Today I have some very special Spin Coins for you. These are Titanium Game Coins with a deeply milled Hypno pattern in the center. There is a wide variety of stamps as well as complex color anodizing effects on these. And to make it even more complicated there are some with the spirals in reverse direction too. Fun stuff and they are absolutely stunning!
Hypno Game Coins will run $95 plus shipping and the link to purchase is below. It is a limited size batch so one per customer on them please. Thanks as always for stopping by today and I hope your weather is as sweet as ours this week!
Sold Out, thank you everyone!
