15 is a few less than 100
Well, the 100 Day Project turned out to be harder for me to keep up on than I had planned. In January, I made a trip to Florida to learn some new processes for jewelry making and once I was back, I stopped working on the 100 day project. I signed up for the 100 day project to create space in my life for new designs and new ways of exploring three dimensional shapes through carving wax. While I did see marked improvement in my skills over 15 days of wax carving, I am now finding myself in April with a mere 15 waxes to show for my project.
I think that all creativity comes from a place that is hard to cultivate and maybe my 15 days were just the spark I needed because I have a whole bunch of other new designs and pieces that are being worked on and I am really excited about them! Another trip up in my 100 day project commitment was only allowing myself 1 hour per day to carve wax. I simply have a hard time stopping after one hour, so I would find myself spending 3-4 hours on a wax, without really having that much time to dedicate to it.
Regardless, it is what it is. I am very grateful for the part of the project I completed and I think it is rather awesome to have even achieved what I have. I think I asked the forces that be for wax carving skills. The answer I got was for a different question. I am okay with that. The question should have been: What new things should I explore? The answer was Keum Boo, Die Cutting and Enamel Pens. More coming soon on this soon!

I love the pendant so much! The details are perfect.
I love the prints on all of these. I have bought many for Christmas gifts, nieces in H.S. and MIL. They like them all, very beautiful prints
Walking through the woods when it's "raining" autumn is one of my favorite things to do and this pendant captures that experience beautifully!! Thank you!!
This pendant is beautiful. It inspires so many wonderful memories of the loons on our lake. It is a true keepsake!
Love my pendant!
The Woodland Conifer pendant in silver is my very favorite necklace. It’s a perfect size, goes with anything I wear (I actually never take it off) and it reflects my love of the northwoods. I couldn’t be happier with my purchase.
I purchased this pendant as a gift for an NMU alumni as a reminder of their time at NMU, in Marquette near our beautiful Lake Superior! The stunning landscape on this pendant is sure to provide lifetime memories of treasured times in Marquette!
Thank you for your gifts and talents you create in your amazing pieces.
