Favourite tools

I have been using these for over ten years. I can not make anything at all without these six. Less than $40 investment. There are pair of carbide jaw chippers and one large tweezers missing from the shot. This is it pretty much. I like it simple.

the very first beads

 I have ever made, my friends bench, back home-2001. The pink horse necklace was made in 2002, at the end of the year, several months after I got my own torch set up. Lady and the Tiger, first murrine, late 2003. I still have those pieces, milestones.

Blueberries picking

 I have planted eight blueberry bushes last year, and anticipated at least enough fruit for a pie, so did every bird in the whole village. I managed to eat ONE blueberry. They win. Luckily there is a beautiful local patch.
