It's that time again...my Aspiring Metalsmiths Team blogroll. This month we're talking about what we're working on right now.
If you've been listening to me blabber on for the past few months you know that I am working on about a bazillionish horseshoe pendants for the Primetime Emmy Awards celebrity gift bags. I also have customers YAY!! So in between horseshoes I work on their orders.
My organized chaos
As you can see, I'm in various stages of completion of horseshoe pendants, 1 Star of David dog tag, and 3 personalized double disc name necklaces.
It may look like a hot mess but I know exactly where everything is. If so much as one horseshoe gets moved out of place I WILL KNOW. And heads will roll. I'm serious man.
Oh and I actually finished something last night! There are those rare occasions when I get an idea, sketch it out, and finish it all in one day.
So, besides providing jewelry for the gift bags, a few of my pieces will be displayed at the celebrity gift lounge by The Artisan Group. This lounge is hosted by Gavin B. Keilly of GBK Productions. Mr. Keilly gets his very own gift bag and he doesn't exactly seem like the skull/dog tag/guitar pick type.
This was hard for me! I thought and I pondered and I consulted and I finally gave up. And wouldn't you know, as soon as I stopped thinking about it I had an idea! Isn't that always how it works?

I had to throw a little of my "trashed" vibe in there, I couldn't help it. I hope he likes it!
