Take a leap of faith

I haven't forgotten about you... There have been so many things going on that I haven't had time to share what I've been up to. Here are some images of a few things that I've been doing:

Repurposed bicycle reflector chain-link earrings.

Yard decorations

Zipper earrings

Cast brass and hammered steel cross

Lastly, I've been working on replicating a portion of the Grapevine that I have been commissioned to do. The leaves here are made from reclaimed architectural copper and are formed by chasing and repoussé.
In other news I am up and Minneapolis helping the artist John Pugh with mural for the theater in the round players. It's been a fun trip living in the theater for it over a week but I need to get back to my studio so I can finish my commissioned work.

I took a leave of absence from my day job so that I could help out with this mural and take time to work on my own dream of supporting myself through art work and buying and selling also buying and selling tools and furniture. I was not sure if I was going to keep my job after I ask my boss, however, he let me off the hook and I am doing my best to make the most of it.

There's never an easy time to take a leap of faith because faith is believing without seeing and sometimes we let our minds see negative things before we even try. You can't live your life in fear. I had to put everything in God's hands and trust that he would provide. He always has and never fails to surprise.

Thank you for checking in.
