Posting from work, shh! don't tell
Having a nice morning so far, so taking a minute to post. I just figured out how to post a picture from Webshots to here. It was a new option they had on the side when you go in to look at the albums. This was an atc I did a while back for a swap. Long gone somewhere!
Since I last posted I've been working on a little more organization, this time on some of my jewelry stuff. Was breaking down some old junk jewelry for the beads and sorting them into colors and trying to get some the jewelry and bits in a little better order. Also, I've attempted metal etching as mentioned in the book, Semiprecious Salvage by Stephanie Lee(think that I posted about the book previously). I couldn't find ferric chloride(PCB etchant) which was what she recommended in the book, but upon her recommendation on her blog tried muriatic acid and peroxide with mixed results. I'll post some more about the results when I'm at home. I want to try to do some jewelry like she does in her book, as I love that look, but am having a little trouble finding some items around here.
Well, I actually have to go do some work, so that's all for now.
