A friend pointed me in the direction of a contest being held by Happy Mango Beads, with a “Trash to Treasure” theme.
I spent about 5? or 6? hours working on my entry, and I am delighted to announce that my entry was one of the alternate winners! Which means: FREE BEAD MONEYS. Also: fame and notoriety.
Anyway, here it is, the Machinist’s Collar:
I raided my collection of random metal objects for this. I knew they’d come in handy someday! VINDICATION!!
The collar turned out to be taller than I originally planned, and for a while I felt pretty bummed out that it was not matching my original concept. It was going to be terrible! And then it started to come together, and I am more pleased with the result than I was with my original concept.
On to something less wearable:
Back in August, Artisan’s Asylum had the opportunity to participate in a hackerspace competition. We had 3 weeks to complete a project. Which would be videotaped. The process and the final result. For the purpose of being shown on VIMBY.
The first hour of the show is up, which introduces the competition and very briefly introduces the 5 groups participating. We will get our very own hour in an upcoming week.
Much like the project itself, this both terrifies and excites me.
