Studio Tour Sunday

 It has been a very busy week for me, mostly spent helping a couple of friends.  But it has been a mellow weekend at Market this weekend.  We have snow and cold, and despite a Blues festival going on, it is pretty slow.  So I took a few pictures of some cool metal stuff I have in my booth, like the tray of old metal keys above.
 ooh pretty Tierracast pewter charms.  These pictures are oddly turned.  How random!  I am too tired to change them, so let's just call it artsy!
 So yeah, not a lot going on in my studio lately.  I hope to get more stuff done this week that i can share!  Until then, please enjoy these links from some of my beady friends:
