About Me

My photo

I love hammering gold, silver, copper, brass, and bronze into amazing textured custom rings, custom wedding rings, engagement rings, and other unique artisan jewelry.  I have an extensive selection of men's and women's rings, along with gemstone and pearl jewelry in my SilverSmack shop on Etsy.  Please stop in and take a look.

A Poem I wrote

Beyond Semi-precious

Lapidolite, Dumorterite, Iolite

even the sedimentary syllables shine

nutured by nature

colored by the earth


fossilized blooms

petrified sunsets

envelop me

Photography Aid

Now, I'm not the greatest photographer and would never claim to be, but I came across what I think is the greatest photography aid EVER! I always had trouble holding the camera steady for those close-up shots. I had a little, tiny tripod, but it wasn't tiny enough. This bendy tripod lets me bend it as small as I want.

I got it at Best Buy for $21.99 and I threw the package away, but the name on it says SUNPAC. For outdoor pics, you can also bend it around trees, decks, playground equipment, or whatever else you can find. I love it!

That is really neat! I've never seen anything like it. I don't normally use a tripod, but it's got me thinking :)

You know, I got my brother something just like that, called a gorillapod. I didn't occur to me how useful I might find it! Great idea!

This is a great little tool to have!

What a clever little tripod! I don't usually use them because of their inflexibility but this one fixes that issue. I might have to check it out!

At first I thought it was made out of buttercup candy...what a great tool.

That's very clever. I take macro photos on the table, very close, and even my little so-called tabletop tripod won't work. I know it's partly operator error, but this looks promising. Thanks for the info.
