This blog began way back in 2010 as a hobbyist's journal. I enjoy metalsmithing and have always loved to write. I had recently started working on marketing projects for clients and the work was still slow coming in. A little blog project seemed like the perfect way to integrate my interests and simultaneously expand my skills in metalsmithing, website design and social media.
I've been browsing through four years of posts, thinking of them like stepping stones or bread crumbs along a path that I'm still walking. There were some hits and misses on the blog, all good learning experiences.
My all-time most popular post is Happy 2013 and Tips for a Cut Finger, a story that readers often find while their fingers are still bleeding. I feel good knowing the story makes people laugh while also offering usable advice. And since misery loves company, many leave stories of their own in the comments. This month alone, Google Analytics reports almost 400 hits for that post. Unexpected!
Also high on the list are My Modified Harbor Freight Hydraulic Press, My First Green Patina Experiment, Blog Index for 5th Annual Lewton-Brain Conference (a live-blog collection), and Large Scale Foldforming with Linda Leviton, Part 1 and Part 2.

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
