We packed up everything we own and left the mountains around Durango Colorado and moved to lower and warmer South Carolina. Near family and the beach.
Took a few months to get the house we wanted, move in and unpack. Of course my engraving studio was the first thing I unpacked. This studio has great light from two large windows and plenty of room for me to work.
After a three month layoff I’m going to warm up with a simple project and get all the rust off my skill set before I tackle a firearm. I’m going to start work on a silver cuff bracelet.
The bracelet will be 3/4 inch wide silver and I’m looking forward to the nice soft cutting of silver.
It is hard to explain how much I have missed engraving. At first I thought it would be like a vacation. However, after a month that vacation feeling was replaced by boredom. I needed something to do. After 3.5 months away from the bench I was going crazy. Even with all the details required to get into a new home I was still missing the art work.
Feels so good to have a project to work on today. Can’t wait to put pencil to paper and start designing this bracelet.
