As many of you know, I had a hard time feeling finished with this piece. I ended up fabricating a test tube rack and more samples to complete it. I’m very happy with the result.

If you happen to go on Rio Grande’s facebook this week you’ll notice one of my rings is their new cover photo!
They were asking people to send in images of the first piece of jewelry they had ever made. This was my first jewelry piece from my intro class; a ring that fits over three fingers.
"Revolutions" is a ring made out of copper and nickel with two cabochons set in it, one green and one yellow. The ring can be flipped and worn with either showing. It also opens up.
Very exciting!

I haven’t been able to feel ‘finished’ with the Deoxyribonucleic Acid Storage and Examination System piece for nearly a year. Even after some serious cleanup I kept feeling as though some major element was missing.

A lightbulb went off and I started toying with constructing a test tube holder that would be a part of this piece. The test tube holder will hold other test tubes that will include other biological samples from me! I’m pumped up about this addition and I plan to finish it by Wednesday so it can be entered in the senior exhibition.

I keep joking that this piece will never be finished…ten years from now I’ll have a room dedicated to it and all the pieces I keep adding haha.

Project I of this semester. 
It’s very close to being finished, now it just needs some fine tuning and cleanup (i.e. some of that horrifying solder). The lenses work wonderfully in magnifying the DNA sample. Overall, I’m very excited about how the finished piece will turn out.
The clock is ticking and the semester is almost finished so I have some long days, late nights, and a lot of work to churn out.
