Yeah that was probably too long for a blog post title. Tinyurl.com, here I come. But guess what? I'm the official live blogger for the 5th Annual Charles Lewton-Brain Conference!!!!!!
Maybe I'm a little excited :-D
LIVE BLOG AUG 3-6, right here on SueLacy Wired!
What have I been up to this week? Well, about that. Grrr
Cuffs, cuffs, cuff... they are so much fun to make. Recently it occurred to me that I almost never plan a cuff. Literally, I often pick up a sheet of copper with no idea where it's going. There must be a big piece of my brain operating under my radar because next thing I know, I'm banging away. Kind of freaks me out.
Since that seems like a weakness rather than a strength, I sat down with pencil and paper to plan out some cuffs. Because I so admire and envy all you artists with your little sketch books filled with ideas.
Instant brain freeze. Jeesh.
So I decided to peruse my cuff photos to get things going again. It seemed like a good idea to collect a bunch into a collage for future reference. And that's where I stand at the moment -- with a collage but no new cuff this week. LOL. Might as well share the collage.
On a positive note...
I did finish up a made-to-order, wire-wrapped Tree of Life this week. It's fine silver, amethyst, and peridot -- very nice combination! I like making these by request because it's always fun to see new colors unfold. I seem to tweak the frame design a bit every time. But I try to make just one every month or two, to keep it fresh and fun. Trees should not be tedious ;-)
OK. That's it for this week but come back to hear all about the 5th Annual Charles Lewton-Brain Conference! I'll start one monster post and keep adding to it all four days, Aug 3-6.
Do you want to learn foldforming from Charles Lewton-Brain, its inventor? He will be at Center for Metal Arts Aug 3-6. I'll be there again this year... why not you too? Click here for the invitation or leave me a comment and I'll hook you up. Still not sure? This video will give you a little taste... http://youtu.be/_0Noad96KsI ***And here's a new development -- for a special discount, say that Sue Lacy sent you!

This began as a hobbyist's blog.
Over time it became a quest to support & connect metalsmiths around the globe who use foldforming techniques in their work.
See how it all
