Starting Out
I've been wanting to write more about my jewelry than I can on Body Impolitic, where I blog with wild_irises; mostly on body image and art.  I was having tea with my friend elisem; a while ago, after a panel we did on fiber, beads, metal and high geekiness.  She convinced my that lj was the right place to start writing about this part of my work.

I'm used to writing more formally for Body Impolitic and I'm looking forward to writing in a more conversational way. I'll also have much more "relaxed" spelling and grammar.

I've been carving a wax for a silver pendant of at fire bird from the Russian legends, for quite a while.  Today, I carved the fine detail in the feathers and figured out how to make some feathers that simultaneously look like subtle flames.  It has 3 antique Hungarian garnets in it's tail  They're a dark blood red. This kind of detail takes a lot of focus and I've run out for today, so I'm here starting my journal.

Hi Laurie! I'm here via elisem. I'm not sure we've ever actually met in the flesh, though we have run in the same circles for years. Of course, we could have and my swiss-cheese memory is failing me again.

I'm Nevenah Smith. I used to do a lot of lost wax casting until I turned my sights on carving glass with a sandblaster. Perhaps we'll have a chance to talk at WisCon?

Lost Wax Conversation

I'll look forward to talking to you about it at Wiscon.
