I'd like to start blogging more about metalsmithing, and the messy-yet-rewarding process of creating jewelry! That content is what I'm going to be putting up just here over the next 3 weeks, both to make the process a little less intimidating as compared to my wider net of blogs, and to contribute something to the [community profile] three_weeks_for_dw fest.

But right now my brain is fried and I'm having trouble getting started on a project. So!

Who wants to give me jewelry prompts? You can suggest anything, however vague or concrete (though I reserve the right to veto, say, a suggestion to make a steampunk rubber chicken).

oh hey, I have more icon slots, I could icon up shiny things I've made more recently than a year ago!

1) Anyone want to go with me to see Truth Values on the 17th? It looks pretty interesting and relevant to both MIT (of the 80's as well as now) and geek feminism!

2) I have a metal stamping tool that (I think) will be useful for producing pixel designs on jewelry. Problem is, it's big enough that I think that any design would need to have a small number of pixels--at least one of the dimensions would need to be 10 pixels or less. I'm planning on trying a little pixel heart, but if anyone has other cute, very small pixel art designs that they think are cool (and won't get me sued for replicating), please let me know! Oh, and I'm also going to experiment with some texturing options so that there are multiple "colors" available, not just black and white.
