I got my 5x8.5 Black Moleskine two days ago for the Sketchbook Project ( http://www.arthousecoop.com/projects/sketchbookproject ).

Eventhough I am pretty excited about the possibilities of this little book, I have only barely started to decorate the inside cover. There is something daunting about a blank book. Even more daunting is knowing the book won't go on my shelf when it's full but will go away and travel around and be thumbed through by what i imagine will be a lot of other people. People i don't know. People I will never meet. It is at once exhilarating and terrifying.

I am hoping to put some of the non-jewelry supplies i have been accumulating over the years to use in this project and i plan to spend tonight sifting through those things while i wait for my kiln to get up to temperature.

I would devote the night to just the sketchbook but it's Autumn finally and finally i can run my kiln without feeling like i am dying.

There is a small window between too hot to breathe and too cold to maintain dexterity and it is happening right now.

Behind the Brooch part 2

I am happy to share with all of you more images of wonderful brooches from artists around the word. I had so many submissions on my first call that I had to create a second part exhibition. This exhibition focuses on a side of the brooch we usually do not pay much attention to: the back side. Our first look is naturally always trained at the front, but when we do take the time to look at the back of a brooch, it will oftentimes reveal a surprising aspect for us, a delightful little secret.
