As the nation and the world hunkers down in an effort to slow the spread COVID-19, not much has changed here at the Wire Smith. Everything I make is done at home and I'm limiting my time in public places. Have made a few improvements to my studio, check it out -
Front and center a new stool. I was using an office chair, but the arms got in the way and if my husband needed to be in the office, too I was out of luck. As a bonus it matches my vise.
That green and black box is a fancy new vacuum with HEPA filtration. Doesn't it remind you of WALL-E when he folds himself up? Very cute. I have to perfect the dust collection on the bench, but it's all in the works.
That's a new task light as well. The one I had was a strange compact fluorescent and the bulb broke. We'll probably replace it and use it elsewhere in the house, but this one is LED and has a much more neutral color value to the light so it's better.
Anyway, that's what's going on at the Wire Smith. Will write about making my first ever post earrings with cabochons - success, failures and lessons learned! Boy did I ever learn some of those.
