Scrounging for materials and tools is a central part of my studio practice, and there are great bargains to be found! In the past year, I’ve purchased a nice amount of silver for about $2/ounce, received several pounds of enamels, and refurbished hundreds of rusty chasing tools. Luck has a lot of influence, and the generosity of donors cannot be understated, but there are also strategies involved to help make oneself luckier as well. This blog will also promote recycling and reusing by encouraging artists to donate or sell excess tools or materials to others who need it.

Wow, Brigitte! What a sneaky way to take out the trash. "Come to Pittsburgh and take some home with you". ; ) We'll definitely be taking you up on the curbside art supplies in June.
We did an interesting project a few years back in an international group like this. We all exchanged grab bags of odd junk and had to make a piece of jewelry with whatever we got. It was a lot of fun, and some really fantastic work came out of it. Anyone want to play?
I'm home! I'm home!!!
Hah, that's a fantastic shot!
I am a big time scrounger, so this sounds like a great group for me!
