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!

Creativity Begins Anew!

Slowly, but surely we are making progress.  Boy I'm glad we have another bathroom to use!

I have now painted the ceiling and the walls.  We are stalled a bit now while waiting for the fixtures to arrive so the plumber can install the bathtub, the faucets and shower things.  Then we'll get to get the tiling done !  Can't wait.

So, how am I getting creative finally? 

I am creating pewter repousse' for the light switch covers...I just finished the first one and thought I would share it and see what you all think. 

The room will be very earthy...stone border throughout the room and a nice soothing green on the walls.  So, I chose to do vines and leaves for the design on the switch plates.  I decided not to put a dark patina on them, just keep them soft pewter.

Now I just have to quit being lazy and get some more made!  Hopefully I'll finish them by the time the fixtures arrive!  I will keep you posted.
