Samantha Villenave1,067,052+Art+Talk #16, an interview with +Kurt Ankeny, hosted by myself and +Lena Levin .I asked Kurt for a bio. What he gave me are these beautiful words."I like to describe myself as an autodidact, but that's not really true at all. If anything, I'm a bibliodidact. Some of the works most important to my formation were How to Draw Comics the Marvel Way by Stan Lee and John Buscema and Anatomy Lessons from the Great Masters by Robert Beverly Hale and Terence Coyle. Those two were my lifeline for many critical years of development. In fact, I had given away my copy of Anatomy Lessons,  when I started recognizing images from it in the paintings I was looking at. I hadn't realized how deeply those images penetrated. So I had to buy myself a replacement copy.Here's a problem I have: all writing about art tends to circumvent the art itself. I'm not saying one shouldn't write about art, but it's deceptive to cement into prose a reaction to a piece that depends wholly on the time, circumstances, education, experience, and readiness of the individual viewer looking at it and reacting or responding. So, what you have a is a snapshot of a very, very narrow point where two individuals connected for a moment in time.So those qualms aside, I'm a relatively new painter. I've only been painting for about seven years. Four of them what I would consider "full-time". Painting, as most of us who practice with any determination and ambition know, is a very slow burn. Cy Twombly told Jenny Saville to try and remain ignored for as long as possible. And that is good advice as long as one can manage it. Because painting, especially since the modernist movement, is a vast ocean of possibilities and it takes many canvases to get your bearings.I guess that's my long-winded way of saying that I really don't know what I'm doing yet. I know, I know. One isn't supposed to undercut one's brand and reputation with such nonsense and honesty. "I don't know what I'm doing" does not mean "I don't know where I'm going." I do have plans, I have grand ideas and ambitions. It's just that there's a lot of white space on the map between where I stand now and Mount Accomplishment. I think that the fissure between abstraction and figuration is an obvious point of interest. Today's painters are swarming on that likeArt+Talk interview with painter Kurt Ankeny2012-11-04 20:00:0023G+

Dustin W. Stout26,662The Most Creative and Inspiring People on Google+As the first of my #circlesplosion  shares, this crowd-curated circle is comprised of those people who have been personally endorsed as some of the most creative and inspiring people on Google+.These folks are artists, designers, photographers, crafters, painters, musicians, videographers, marketers, and all around creators of things here on Google+.If you're a creator of things and want to connect with more people who create and inspire, add this circle.  Keep watch of the people in this stream and connect with the people you resonate with. About #circlesplosionAs I discussed in my introduction to #circlesplosion  (here - dustn.tv/circlesplosion/) managing and curating your circles will ultimately give you the greatest experience here on Google+. In an effort to connect people with passion, with other people with those same passions, I have resolved to share these crowd-curated circles with the world. I hope this group gives you as much value as it has me!

Meirav M.7,705Meirav's 42some people have been sharing circles of 100, but me, I like smaller numbers. and seriously, as someone who has under 200 people circled in total, picking 100 would be way over the top. so I went for the obvious number of 42 :)These are not my top favourite 42 or my most relevant according to some algorithm or anything of the sort. And I will not tell you that they are the most wonderful people on earth, the creme de la creme of plusland, the greatest engagers or influencers or whatever managementspeak term is the word du jour. I'll be honest with you, as I tend to be when I'm not making up stories about penguins and stuff, and tell you the truth:These are all people I have had in my circles for a while and I like having them in my circles. They've grown on me. They've become part of my pluslife. I can't know if you'll also enjoy having them in your circles, because I'm not you and you're not me, we have different interests and different preferences and just as you might prefer a different ice cream flavour (I'm a Ben & Jerry's cookie dough gal) you are likely to find different people interesting or fun - but here's a circle of 42 people for you to try out if you would like to, and if you find that some of them are not quite your scene then you can always uncircle them. There's no "till death us do part" in plusland :)and no, you absolutely don't have to add them. It's just in case you are looking for more people to populate your stream.You are, in any case, welcome to cookies from the penguin's self-replenishing jar. We will always have cookies. #SharedCircles  2013-08-10 00:32:3242615CC G+
Mz Maau10,204I rarely share circles, and I regret to inform, this is not the promised #CircleDirk , rather, it's a circle I've been semi-maintaining since last spring, when it was created for +Pierce Arner to jump-start his Plus experience.Today, I'm resharing the current version on behalf of +Søren Dalsgaard Brath, who, like Pierce, is looking for new content for his stream.I figure he and I probably have a chunk of overlap, so I've added a few extras he might not yet know about.Some notes about the curation of this circle:I've tried to set aside those who have not posted recently, and I've tried to only include those who post publicly, or to extended circles.  I may have missed a few, and if you're in this circle and would like to be permanently removed, please let me know.This is not the final version, as I'm not sure such a thing is possible.This circle DOES come with a warning:You will, most likely, NOT enjoy everyone in this circle.  I, like many, have eclectic tastes, and I'm still a bit gun-shy after seeing some of the explosions from last year's crossing of the streams, so PLEASE, edit this circle to your liking with that in mind.If I ping you, you're in the circle.  There is no expectation or requirement to add this circle, it's merely a courtesy ping.  Again, if you would like to be removed from any future circle shares, please let me know.And yes, I promise, I'm still working on the #CircleDirk .Also note:  This is NOT an indication of who I like best, though some are included in this circle.  It is simply meant to be a sample of the diversity I follow.#PinkAndFluffyPersonsOfQuestionableRepute2013-06-22 16:38:09164143576CC G+

Aaron Wood213,460In the entire time I've been here on G+ I've never shared a circle of my own. I've shared a few circles that other compiled, but never something picked from the people I'm following.I know, I know... very selfish of me, especially since I've been in a lot of circle shares since the good ol' days of beta.Well, I'm going to make up for that now. This is my "Battle Tested" circle. It includes a lot of familiar faces and maybe some people you haven't seen before.This is quite the rogues gallery of different people. You have been warned. ;)(As is customary, I added myself... because... yeah. lol)2013-05-17 16:07:3110611218CC G+
Lee Smallwood22,777Outstanding Contribution to G+ CircleActions [sometimes] speak louder than words - spoken or otherwise...Which is why I want to share this circle in particular. It contains people that go beyond the norm and their contributions to G+ are second to none.There maybe some familiar faces contained within it and some not so well known... However, together they create an entertaining and thought provoking content stream that I can't do without on a daily basis.Seriously consider adding them to your circles :) #circleshare  2013-05-10 10:51:3613625219CC G+
Stephanie Calahan513FABULOUS WOMEN ON G+ Part 1 of 4My goal was to crowd-source a list of women on Google+.  I had originally expected maybe 50 names.  Much to my surprise and , I received over 400+ comments filled with love and positive energy to help curate this list of well over 1310 beautiful people. I would say this was a success and now I'm sharing with everyone (this is shared public too).If you're getting a notification about this it's because you've been identified as a Fabulous Woman on G+ that is Actively posting and Engaging here.  See the bottom of this message for the original post where names were collected.I thought you would want to know that you have been identified as someone the G+ community should connect with!  I don't send out notifications unless there is 100% warranted.#Google+ will only allow me to share 500 at a time, so the list has been broken down in to 4 circles.  I would have shared one massive circle if I was allowed.What You Can Do Now* Add these circles to your own circles by pressing the "View shared circle" button below. Then you can either add it to an existing circle of yours or add it as a new circle by giving it a new name.

Stephanie Calahan513FABULOUS WOMEN ON G+ Part 1 of 4My goal was to crowd-source a list of women on Google+.  I had originally expected maybe 50 names.  Much to my surprise and #Gratitude , I received over 400+ comments filled with love and positive energy to help curate this list of well over 1310 beautiful people. I would say this was a success and now I'm sharing with everyone (this is shared public too).If you're getting a notification about this it's because you've been identified as a Fabulous Woman on G+ that is Actively posting and Engaging here.  See the bottom of this message for the original post where names were collected.I thought you would want to know that you have been identified as someone the G+ community should connect with!  I don't send out notifications unless there is 100% warranted.#Google+ will only allow me to share 500 at a time, so the list has been broken down in to 4 circles.  I would have shared one massive circle if I was allowed.What You Can Do Now* Add these circles to your own circles by pressing the "View shared circle" button below. Then you can either add it to an existing circle of yours or add it as a new circle by giving it a new name.

Hey, guys!

What would you think if I ran a Kickstarter with Markov Jewelry Gift Certificates as rewards?

What if the rewards were as close to 1:1 as Kickstarter fees would allow me to get?

Meaning, if you donate $11, you get a $10 gift certificate,  $55, you get a $50 gift certificate, and so on.

(Kickstarter takes ~10% of total amount raised as fees.)

Right now, I'm not able to work as fast or tackle new pieces as people are calling for, because I have to wait for the funds to obtain supplies, or to replace tools. Sometimes it's big tools - like metal folding tools - and sometimes it's small tools - like flex shaft tips that have worn down that I use to finish cuffs.

Plus, there are projects people want to see me take on that I don't have the money to invest in the tools needed. (Example: I've lost track of... more »

I don't really ever stop painting, if I'm honest; the canvas and brushes just change.

Try number one for a Folded Ribbon ring base in copper. :D

This is about as small of a ring width as we've been able to fold without losing the center band or having structural issues. About half an inch wide.

These chains are no small undertaking. Etruscan in fine silver - an ancient chain pattern/technique.

(Blog post on www.markovjewelry.com coming soon on the process, once i get the images sorted, and this chain finished.)

Tonight, I'm working on chain as copper seals, and hoping Rio gets my 'ohshit' order of shofu polishing wheels out tomorrow. I have enough of ONE wheel on a flex shaft tip left to finish one more cuff. Problem: I have 4 more after that to finish. Eek!

We ran by Goodwill for some school clothes, and this was one of the outfits he picked. Kid looks SHARP.

13 days until we, assuming all goes well, get the keys to the new (rental) house.

It still feels way too good to be true. It's been an insane push to come up with the means to move and cover expenses. ("If we skip meals so many times this week, and we don't drive much, and if we work really hard, we can make it and cover all the bills, and won't it be nice when they are so much lower?..." so goes the conversations.)

But we're almost there, we just have to not have any major unexpected expenses for 13 more days. 

And then find a way to rent a truck. ;)

via +Mz Maau 

"One common therapeutic strategy [to deal with people who feel as though they are a burden] is to talk about how much the patient’s parents/friends/girlfriend/pet hamster love them, how heartbroken they would be if they killed themselves. In the absence of better alternatives, I have used this strategy. I have used it very grudgingly, and I’ve always felt dirty afterwards. It always feels like the worst sort of emotional blackmail. Not helping them want to live, just making them feel really guilty about dying. “Sure, you’re a burden if you live, but if you kill yourself, that would make you an even bigger burden!” A++ best psychiatrist.

There is something else I’ve never said, because it’s too deeply tied in with my own politics, and not something I would expect anybody else to understand.

And that is: humans don’t owe society anything. We were here first.

If my patient, the one with the brain damage, were back in the Environment of Evolutionary Adaptedness, in a nice tribe with Dunbar’s number of people, there would be no problem.

Maybe his cognitive problems would make him a slightly less proficient hunter than someone else, but whatever, he could always gather.

Maybe his emotional control problems would give him a little bit of a handicap in tribal politics, but he wouldn’t get arrested for making a scene, he wouldn’t get fired for not sucking up to his boss enough, he wouldn’t be forced to live in a tiny apartment with people he didn’t necessarily like who were constantly getting on his nerves. He might get in a fight and end up with a spear through his gut, but in that case his problems would be over anyway.

Otherwise he could just hang out and live in a cave and gather roots and berries and maybe hunt buffalo and participate in the appropriate tribal bonding rituals like everyone else.

But society came and paved over the place where all the roots and berry plants grew and killed the buffalo and dynamited the caves and declared the tribal bonding rituals Problematic. This increased productivity by about a zillion times, so most people ended up better off. The only ones who didn’t were the ones who for some reason couldn’t participate in it. [...]

Society got where it is by systematically destroying everything that could have supported him and replacing it with things that required skills he didn’t have. Of course it owes him when he suddenly can’t support himself. Think of it as the ultimate use of eminent domain; a power beyond your control has seized everything in the world, it had some good economic reasons for doing so, but it at least owes you compensation! [...]

As the waterline rises, the skills necessary to support yourself comfortably become higher and higher. Right now most people in the US who can’t get college degrees – which are really hard to get! – are just barely hanging on, and that is absolutely a new development. Soon enough even some of the college-educated won’t be very useful to the system. And so on, until everyone is a burden."___via +Mz Maau

Three blog posts? Sure, why not. Let's get those babies started.

Hoping this helps speed the image side along, since I take so many photos with my phone now:

PS: +Obi Debo - Speaking of phones, have you heard the rumor that the Note 4 is coming out sooooon? I may upgrade, since I'm due and it wouldn't cost me to do so... and that camera would stand to be better than my Nikon DSLR. O.o

Huh.

I make some damn pretty chains. 

It's easy to get lost in what needs doing and what isn't quite up to par, and forget what you do right.

That's one of my hand fused s-hook clasps. I make them by hand... because I can.

noun
a huge, powerful, and overwhelming force or institution.

This word was applied to me today, by someone I respect highly. I consider it one hell of a compliment. The implications are that I am a force of nature, unstoppable, overwhelmingly powerful.
It was linked to my being terrifying in certain spheres, to certain people; terrifying because I make things happen despite not seeming to have the resources that most people would consider necessary to make those things happen.

I do the seemingly impossible.

And yet, in the back of my mind, in answer to this compliment of my power, I can hear the voice of haters. I can hear the mockery.

That I have the courage to face it, conquer it, and share the fight.

I can hear the voice of haters, of a culture that benefits from my being held back. I can hear how this word could be used as a negative, because of my gender.

I am unstoppable, I remind myself. Gender has nothing to do with it now.

What do y'all think? Would you share the Kickstarter? Would you pick up your own gift certificates?

What if each one came with the option to get first dibs on new pieces when you used that gift certificate?___

My fuse joints have gotten better.

Chain links being shaped after initial fusing. They'll be annealed (heated to near-melting) after being shaped. This softens the metal so it does not snap while being linked together to form the chain.

Day Off, n.

The day I work on new projects. Usually major pieces. Or when i work on little details of other pieces that don't have a deadline. Or, you know, just a day when deadlines don't dominate the schedule. When I'm totally allowed to work st my own pace. Good days.

Starting another fine silver chain here. Second step, after forming and cutting jump rings that will make the chain links, is fusing all of those jump rings. I'm working in 20 gauge fine silver here; 20 gauge is the same size as most ear wires.

I posted a different shot of this one earlier. 

Here's a detail of the focal. :D

Details: Hand wrought chain, 16in long. Hand-wrapped stone, with balled wire ends. Custom, handmade clasp. All fine silver.Finished off with very pretty "Sea Sediment Jasper" stone.

On Sea Sediment Jasper: I suspect they are man-made stones, lots of different bits of stone smushed together and colored, shaped and polished. They also could be lower grade jasper that has been color enhanced. As much of a faux pas as that might be to many high end jewelers, I enjoy the shock of delicious color these bits bring to a piece. That freedom of choice is one of the great parts about being an indie designer.

Off we go to the show!

Only one Aurora Borealis cuff coming today, though it's signed and looking gorgeous.

Which is a good thing, as it took me an hour last night to finish the details on it.

So, that's what, three or four hours of hands on time per cuff? 24 hours of tumbling. Half an hour of Steve cutting metal. Sealant, a LOT of torch fuel.

Hmm.

I did get one new Aurora Borealis cuff finished. There are five more in various stages of completion on the bench, too.

Between the possible heavy rain tomorrow and a heavy hitting round of depression that came out swinging tonight (fantastic timing, shit) we're playing the art festival by ear tomorrow.

It'd be great to show the new pieces off, but if I don't take care of myself as well as the business, there is no business. I kinda need some serious time off.

I'll keep you guys posted, k?

Harley M. Quinn was spotted wearing what appears to be what is popularly called "Sea Sediment Jasper" hanging from handwrought fine silver chain.

Steve found me with my head on the jeweler's bench, sobbing, a few minutes ago. Pulled me away.

I'm out of commission for a bit.

Peace.

I wrote a thing, a thing that hopefully will help other small biz people. 

Yes, I wrote this even after spending time at Moffitt with Steve for a month of weekly chemo treatments. And launching a new website. And being broke. And trying to find a way to move.

And I still feel like I didn't get enough done.

The newest post from the awe-inspiring +Abigail Markov. You should see what all she got accomplished in July!

What's interesting about this piece, to me, is that even though money is tight and you ABSOLUTELY have to put it where it'll do the most good, she still got enough benefit out of Facebook ads to merit the investment. A) I thought those things were scams, and B) I'm seriously impressed at how well they did for her.___I wrote a thing, a thing that hopefully will help other small biz people.

+Abigail Markov 's post for tomorrow is what FINALLY made me watch this Brene Brown video.

"What do these people have in common? I have a slight office supply addiction, but that's another talk. So I had a manila folder, and I had a Sharpie, and I was like, what am I going to call this research? And the first words that came to my mind were whole-hearted. These are whole-hearted people, living from this deep sense of worthiness. So I wrote at the top of the manila folder, and I started looking at the data. And so here's what I found. What they had in common was a sense of courage. These folks had, very simply, the courage to be imperfect. They had the compassion to be kind to themselves first and then to others, because, as it turns out, we can't practice compassion with other people if we can't treat ourselves kindly. And the last was they had connection, and -- this was the hard part -- as a result of authenticity, they were willing to let go of who they thought they should be in order to be who they were, which you have to absolutely do that for connection."

"The other thing that they had in common was this: They fully embraced vulnerability. They believed that what made them vulnerable made them beautiful. They didn't talk about vulnerability being comfortable, nor did they really talk about it being excruciating -- as I had heard it earlier in the shame interviewing. They just talked about it being necessary. They talked about the willingness to say, "I love you" first, the willingness to do something where there are no guarantees, the willingness to breathe through waiting for the doctor to call after your mammogram. They're willing to invest in a relationship that may or may not work out. They thought this was fundamental."

That's what I love about this #insidemymicrobiz  experiment. This is what we're doing Well, honestly, it's mostly Abby, but I'm right there beside her! And honestly, we all know that other people feel these things. We just aren't sure if we'll be ostracized for, y'know, saying them. If we show our soft underbelly, will we get kicked or embraced?

"You are imperfect, and you're wired for struggle, but you are WORTHY of love and belonging." And we're trying to share that with as many of "our people" as possible. I hope we're helping.___<3

Cut, close flush. As perfectly as possible.

Repeat hundreds of times.

I'll fuse each link closed later, hopefully tomorrow. (Not solder, fuse.)

Was thinking a double loop in loop chain for these.

I'm still not sure why I enjoy chain making so much.

Handwrought chain before truing and being run through the wood draw plate a few times, and then chain after truing and draw-plating.

Even the righthand chain has work left.

My desk today; at Moffitt with Steve, last chemo treatment for a while! Yay!

Tools, from left to right: round-nose pliers, scribe for truing chain links, chain nose pliers (set out for obvious reasons) and super flush cutters. Ruler the top, above the piece I'm working on today, and my growing collection of discarded chain links at the bottom right.

About the work in progress: I'm working primarily on a chain today, for that emerald/green beryl near the top of The Traveling Desk. I need to reset the stone tonight, too. I'm not happy with how it came out, but had to call it a night last night before I could redo it. (Yes, I worked past 1am again. Got up at 6:30am. Ouch.)

I don't really ever stop painting, if I'm honest; the canvas and brushes just change.

Trying something a little different on this one.

I know the colors will darken considerably when sealed, so I'm not holding my breath that I'll keep this exactly as is. 

Unsealed and the colors risk being damaged when worn.

The last three Aurora Borealis cuffs are fused.

Now it's on to tumbling, once our single remaining, surviving , tumbler is done with the two cuffs that are in it currently!

In the mean time, it's on to fusing links for chain, and attempted stone setting. Hopefully other design work, too.

Off to work. Have seven more Aurora Borealis cuffs in the works.

This is the first one, just finished and photographed by +Steve Muller. It's already sold.

(Yes, before I even had a chance to list it as for sale. Before it was finished.)

Three more cuffs to fuse, then it's on to pendants, making links for chain, attempting an open-backed bezel setting, tumbling umpteen cuffs, finishing a small custom order, working more on the final details of a large custom order, finishing four pairs of gyroscope, another pendant, and then finishing these two rings.
