I thought I was going to have a nice three day break from everyday mothering and such. I thought it would be relaxing.
I was wrong.
The PMC class was intense. The projects had to be perfect. Let's just all keep in mind that I don't do anything perfect. I detest perfect.
I wanted to huck most of my projects out the window and make a dramatic exit after speaking my mind about the artistic value of imperfect.
But I passed. And now I know a whole lot more than I ever wanted to know about precious metal clay and it's properties. And I can go back to making things imperfect and flawed with a whole lot of character.
And there was the fire. I do enjoy working with torches. It's therapy really.
AND I feel ready to get back to making jewelry. Now I have more skills to make exactly what I dream up in my head.
If you want to take a class to learn how to get started with PMC, I'm your girl.
Oh and the other exciting part is I bought a full sized kiln. I've always wanted a kiln since I was little. It's just one of those things a girl like me needs.
