First of all, super-belated thanks for the DD! It tells you how little we've been around that we didn't know until over a month later! Our website www.soulstonedesigns.com is currently defunct because we just don't have time to maintain it. I also haven't checked our gmail account in many moons - sorry if anyone tried to contact us and we didn't respond! Disappearing wasn't intentional - we've both just thrown ourselves into our jobs in the jewelry industry with little time left over for creative endeavors. We can't take commissions right now because we don't have any workspace, but if you want to inquire about purchasing something
Hello all, Cynthia and I are still alive.
We visited the Mingei museum yesterday. Amazing collection of contemporary and traditional craft. http://www.mingei.org/splash.php
The tilt-top tables by W Patrick Edwards were particularly impressive. Find it here under Most Recent Work; http://www.wpatrickedwards.com/port.htm#
In other news, I have a small photo studio now and start blacksmithing classes on Dec 4th, but still no jewelry studio at the moment. I'm also halfway finished earning my Graduate Gemologist diploma.
Thank you all for continued words of encouragement. We're looking forward to being active here again, when time permits.
Sorry about our utter lack of activity lately. I'm afraid it's going to be that way for awhile. Work has me extremely busy (I get home about 7:30 at night), and we're in the midst of a move. So it's probably going to be some time before this account or any of our others is really up and running again. Thanks for all the support - we aren't ignoring anyone on purpose, we're just buried under a mountain of obligations!
I goofed! I accidentally deleted my main account (UniquelyYours) while trying to delete Aartsee1. Now, I am starting all over again... brand new account. Very sad, but I'm glad to be finding my old friends.
