Welcome to Stormflight Designs


If you've always wondered about how jewelry is made and fine craft is done, this is the blog for you! Our intent is to show you the step-by-step of creating jewelry from a silver-smith's and lampworker's point of view. We'll throw in some other interesting craft-work too. Consider this a "tutorial-light" blog in a way. You'll get to see the creative process from start to finish. Sometimes it may take a while to get to the finish, so please be patient! We often have to wait for the muse to strike--sometimes in the middle of a different project!

Life Gets In The Way of Art

We all have experienced the annoyance of life getting in the way of all the fun things we want to do.  I'm no exception to this!  I wish I was!

So what has been getting in the way of my creativity?  A bathroom remodel.  So, while I am happy about the remodel, I'm anxious to get it finished.  In order to save some money, we decided to do the demolition ourselves.  What a great way to work our your aggressions!  I've slept pretty well after a full day of breaking tile and knocking out walls.

We have the bathroom pretty much gutted now... I sure am thankful for a handy and strong husband! 

There's nothing left of the shower except a hole in the floor.  Boy was that disgusting and moldy. Its a good thing we decided to do this just to get rid of that.

Tomorrow the carpenter comes to install pocket doors (yea, no more doors hitting each other--seriously!).  Then the tilers come.  We had the good sense not do do this ourselves.  We're just getting too old to 'do it yourself ' anymore.  I have to save my energy for silver work!

So, hopefully in a few weeks I will get to dive into my artwork again.  I am thinking ahead to what I need to make for Christmas time gift giving.

Stay tuned!
