What’s New Wednesday 3/18/15 (Pink and Black Agate, SteampunkCoasters and an iPhone Case)

So, here they are.  My son and his new bride!  I am so proud!!  The second photo also has my mom and dad in there….what a special day!! I am sorry I missed it, but trips to California from Florida just isn’t possible right now!
Yesterday I finished one project and was able to start on another one!!  I haven’t gotten a chance to do the photo shoot and listing yet for this one, but I will get it done today!!
But I did get to start on the Pink and Black Agate Slice….let’s see what I can do with this one!!  Remember, you can come over to my Fan Page, Google+ Page, or my Instagram Page  were I post ‘working’ photos throughout the day. 
Just look at these from my studio…they are wonderful for SPRING!!

Yesterday I  introduced you to JosephAnthony the owner and designer behind SteampunkCoasters and today, I want to tell you more about him!  
When I asked him how his craft has evolved over time, his answer really struck home with me;  At first I really thought I was making some high quality items…I was wrong. Once the shine wears off and you start seriously looking at your craft you beat yourself up pretty bad, I think everyone does that. Once I faced the reality that I needed to do some more research on techniques, styles, color schemes etc. The items I was producing got markedly better. I am constantly trying new things and changing up the process. You always want to produce a better item. For many of us this says what we all feel in the beginning!!
He has been published in the local paper and mentioned on the news – no doubt that will happen more and more!!  I just love to watch what is being ‘remade’ into something new!!  Currently there is work going with this project….everything that you see is found objects and the finished piece will have photos for the numbers!!
And here are two of my favorites!!  I know they aren’t Steampunk, but they are terrific and have that vintage and unique look that comes from a talented artists!
So, check out his sites, watch out for new creations and make sure you shop handmade whenever you can!!
