Making things

Post Comment

While preparing yesterday’s post on scrapbooking, I was reminded of some photographs I’ve been meaning to share… I’m fortunate to have a cousin who’s a talented goldsmith, and who was also generous enough to make our wedding rings. But cooler than that, almost, was the set of photographs she gave us — twelve pictures she took as she worked to document the process.

As a writer, I’m in awe of people who make things — it’s so satisfyingly real and concrete! And while every job has its own set of satisfactions, these images make it seem like the most amazing thing ever to take a chunk of metal and shape it into something gorgeous and meaningful.
