While I was asked to write this for a direct sales audience, it pretty much lists how to sit with sucky feelings, and how to help someone get through sucky feelings - and come out of it for the better - for anyone.

Just repairing links in-line on a 2.5mm chain. No big deal.

(okay, yeah, it's kinda a big deal. It requires putting in and fusing a brand new link without melting anything else. Fusing - NOT soldering.)

A quarter of a millimeter. For this chain, it makes all the difference between stiff and slinky.

Over a month in this piece already - it will become two chains when it's finished.

Working my way through a three-day to do list.

Working on the sixth ring, and polishing work left on the four shown here. Another is sealing. Three commercially-made foxtail chains have been cut and end caps soldered on. Making the findings (clasps) next. Two sets of pearl drops are waiting on ear wires to come out of another tumbler. Copious amounts of my own chain links to cut and fuse. Cuff blanks to cut and fold. Mail to go out, too. Gyroscopes to make, silver to order.

Gonna be a busy weekend.

Should I add on a ring or Gyroscope for you?

Took a break from making chain links to polish this simple ring design a bit. I have a 9.5 and 10 US ring sizes in the tumbler now. The solder join isn't seamless - the twists don't line up perfectly, but there are no sharp edges or snags, so I'm happy.

Copper and fine silver. Will be sealed once they've tumbled and been polished satisfactorily.

Excerpt: There is a central paradox around loneliness. While it can lead towards very undesirable places (isolation, depression, suicide), it can also make us better observers of the social world. We can become more perceptive, more in charge of our own reality, as loneliness makes life compelling. Vitally, loneliness assures us that our life is our own. Historically – and mythically – it has been the singular and narrow path towards virtue, morality and self-understanding.

Not everyone safely returns from loneliness, but those who do – those who retreat into themselves and successfully reemerge into society – return with a far greater understanding of themselves and of others. In loneliness there is thus a balance to be struck; it poses at once the highest risk and the highest reward.

Excerpt: There is a central paradox around loneliness. While it can lead towards very undesirable places (isolation, depression, suicide), it can also make us better observers of the social world. We can become more perceptive, more in charge of our own reality, as loneliness makes life compelling. Vitally, loneliness assures us that our life is our own. Historically – and mythically – it has been the singular and narrow path towards virtue, morality and self-understanding.

Not everyone safely returns from loneliness, but those who do – those who retreat into themselves and successfully reemerge into society – return with a far greater understanding of themselves and of others. In loneliness there is thus a balance to be struck; it poses at once the highest risk and the highest reward.

Of course, experiencing loneliness does not uniformly create virtuous and moral humans, but it has a variety of other benefits: according to a study published in 2015, feeling socially isolated (or on the social perimeter, as any outsider artist or writer might attest) leads to increased attention and surveillance of the social world and a heightened ability for observation.

Using electrical neuroimaging with a small test group, Stephanie Cacioppo, assistant professor of psychiatry at the University of Chicago and her husband John, also at Chicago, found that participants who described themselves as particularly lonely reacted to pictures of threatening stimuli more than twice as fast as people who described themselves as non-lonely (in the lonely: about 116 milliseconds after stimulus onset; in thenon-lonely: about 252 milliseconds after stimulus onset). As John Cacioppo writes in a similar study, this suggests that lonely people’s ‘attention is drawn more to the distress of others’.

The fact that lonely people are more attentive to other people’s distress – principally on a subconscious level, as evidenced by the speed at which the reactions took place – implies that lonely people have a greater capacity for empathy. Ironically, it might be as a result of being lonely that one can better understand others and their social world.

The best creative minds and most charismatic people also tend to be rather lonely. Sharon H Kim, an assistant professor at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore who focuses on individual and group creativity, recently found evidence that people tend to be more creative if they have been socially rejected. What is perhaps most interesting about Kim’s findings is that no actual social rejection has to have taken place; the creative need only feel rejected in some way. Creativity, Kim claims, stems from the ability to make unique connections, to bind together disparate information. Yet it is predominately the rejected and lonely who are able to best accomplish this. ‘Creative people are better at recognising relationships, making associations and connections, and seeing things in an original way  –  seeing things that others cannot see,’ writes the neuroscientist Nancy C Andreasen at the University of Iowa in an article for The Atlantic. Often, she notes, the sole way to access creativity, charisma and new ways of thinking is to experience loneliness.

In evolutionary terms, experiencing loneliness is a part of being human. Lonely, but not too lonely – a Goldilocks mixture that allows us to be at once our individual selves and a functioning part of a wider social sphere – is a key part of survival, according to a recent study from Pamela Qualter, a reader in developmental psychology at the University of Central Lancashire.

With 12+ per inch... I'd better get back to work.

Brand new chain link coil - ran out of links this week for this gauge. Because this gauge is so thin (.5mm) the jump rings are cut by hand with flush cutters, instead of with my electric jump ring saw.

I'll be cutting links for a few days, unless a chain commission comes in.

The final chain made with these links is ~2.5mm in diameter, and is a set of personal projects.

Last call for the end of month order - and there's a sneaky-awesome discount on multiple sheets (it'll show up in the cart), too.

If you have any questions, just holler. I'm off to cut more copper and try to visualize a stone bead & chain necklace I'm working out in my head.

You can order directly from the website (it's my own site and uses PayPal) anytime.

Scraping sealant off a copper fold formed cuff last night peeled the edges on my Coffee Swirl Custom Jamberry set up a bit, so I decided to switch it up - here's Lucid Bubbles!

All of my active team this month is getting half a sheet of these, and I wanted to make sure they wore well. (They do, don't you think?)

The yellow wraps didn't fit my nails, so I'm showing off the purple this week.

One more bit of jewelry back.

I gave away most of what I already had made, minus a couple of pieces. This is one I still have, obviously. I keep telling myself I'll make more of this design with different stones. I have something like 20 sets in various stones. (It's the chain that takes so long.)

"I sat down to work over an hour ago, with the intention of getting custom chain ordering set up in the shop. Simple enough.

So I logged in and went to create the first shop listing, only to realize that I really needed to create a Jewelry category first, so the listings would have somewhere to go. No problem. Oh, and while I'm at it, I should add it to the two menus, so I don't forget this time. And while I'm working with menus, let me get the Nail Wrap menus fixed - they've been off for months. And while I was working on that, a Facebook alert came up - a memory about an old painting, which reminded me that I've been meaning to update the Painting galleries for MONTHS now, so maybe I can just knock one of those out.

I mean, I was prepping file structure for the Color Commentary and Flash Fiction galleries earlier today, even though I'll need to go find all the images and all their names and such, which is a few days of work, so let's just do the new pieces, On Being Human, for now. There's maybe 10 or so in there. Only, crap, I forgot, all the text for each painting description is wonky, and that'll take me a day or two to write and style properly, so let's just get the image grid set up, and I'll hide and save the descriptions for later. But first, I have to go find all those images... and crap, I forgot that I need to export one from Lightroom still. And now all the thumbnails are the wrong size, so I need to go regenerate those too, and hope that works. WHY DOES IT FEEL LIKE I NEVER GET ANYTHING DONE?! Why am I so unproductive? I must be so unmotivated next to people who actually accomplish shit.

Only, it's not about motivation, and I know it. "

""You're weird," he says. "I love you - a lot - but you are weird."

He'd come into the kitchen to check the timer on the bread maker; it was prepping dough for the from-scratch bagels he was making. At 11 o'clock at night. Making more bagels, I should say. We'd already gone through two-and-a-half-dozen in a week, and while we did have help from the kids, it was mostly him eating bagels with cream cheese and lox at every chance he had. He's still very much enjoying it, this person who says to me that I'm weird, I love you, but you are weird. And so he's making more bagels."

While I was asked to write this for a direct sales audience, it pretty much lists how to sit with sucky feelings, and how to help someone get through sucky feelings - and come out of it for the better - for anyone.

All the nail wraps are up to date, finally. Now that I'm roughly caught up to where I was before the website was lost, I can get back to work on getting prints up and available.

Three done today so far.

"I had a conversation with my sister tonight - she was showing me a knitting project she loved, and asked how I was doing. I've been a little broken up about what happened in Orlando this past weekend. We have friends and family who live there - friends who are part of the LGBTQ+ community. Friends who welcomed us with open hearts and arms and who make our world a better place. Wonderful, accepting, open, quirky, fabulous, beautiful, varied humans who treat us like they've known us our whole lives. And they were attacked this weekend.

I'm a little too introverted for large scenes. And I'm not an active member of the LGBTQ+ community in Orlando. Why was this hitting me so hard? Harder than other hate crimes.(Which is saying something. These things hit me pretty hard every time.) I think I know what some of it is - and it's what is hitting a LOT of people so hard."

One last tumble, and it's done. This was a rush order, due to some unforseen circumstances on the Customer's part, and it's right on schedule all the same.

Well, as long as USPS doesn't fubar anything up too badly.

I have room to start on another chain commission as soon as this goes out. Just drop me a line if interested.

This should be in every exfoliation junky's collection. It's a 'take off the crap of the day' ritual for me - in both the physical and psychic sense.

I usually follow it up with Porefect Facial Bar, and a face mask of choice if I have the time. Tonight is Stay Gold with Muddy Honey. (Yes, I mixed them. Yes, it is as heavenly as it sounds.)

I'm going to go do mind mapping on my phone while this mask works it's magic. Yes, in the tub. In the meantime, if you have questions about any Posh, just holler. I'll be in the tub, brainstorming. Heh.

"I’m aware that today is Saturday and the first day of summer vacation for us. But y’all, when your wake up call is a dog vomiting something that smells like death on the carpet next to you… working IS relaxing.

Plus, getting things made and worked in feels good. It gives me a bit of hope for tomorrow. Maybe things will improve if I keep working. (See also: yesterday’s blog post.) Knowing I have collaborations of some sort in the works (and future blog posts to show off the other artists’ work) and knowing that I’m inching closer to Team Manager with Jamberry is a good feeling.

Even if I still have emails to answer. #slacker"

My standard double chain, in its new life as a commissioned bracelet. A little bit of heaven to touch and wear.

Fine silver, start to finish. Toggle clasp in progress at the top. (Not sterling - sterling is 92.5% silver, fine silver is 99.9% silver.)
