 Starting some copper measuring spoons this morning, and enjoying the rays of sun peeking through the window.  This tiny copper spoon has a rustic handle resembling a small tree branch. Perfect for spices and salts. The bowl measures one pinch.  Picked up a bottle of the debut batch from @hoarfrostdistillingak tonight. Into the freezer it goes! #hoarfrostak #vodka #distillery #fairbanks #alaska  A tiny half teaspoon #copper #metal #hammered #coppersmithing #metalsmithing #instasmithy #metalstudio #copperwork #forgedmetal #copperware #jewelrydesign #fairbanks #alaska  Prototype with models. #copper #metal #coppersmithing #metalsmithing #instasmithy #metalstudio #copperwork #forgedmetal #copperware #jewelrydesign #fairbanks #alaska #handmade  sterling earrings. #silver #sterlingsilver #silversmith #instasmithy #metalwork #jewelrydesign #metalsmithing #metalstudio #fairbanks #alaska #handmade  Finished up the chain from last night and the ocean jasper pendant is now officially completed.

Stopping for now so things don't get sloppy. #silver #sterlingsilver #sterling #silversmith #instasmithy #metalwork #jewelrydesign #metalsmithing #metalstudio #fairbanks #alaska #handmade #farnorthdrygoods
 January is gone but it still feels wintery. Rustic sterling silver rings with garnet. #silver #sterlingsilver #sterling #silversmith #instasmithy #metalwork #jewelrydesign #metalsmithing #metalstudio #fairbanks #alaska #handmade #garnet  Tonight was filled with making different copper forms to get a sense for how fast I can execute each one. I really like the rolled sheet best even though it doesn't look very flashy. #copper #metal #hammered #coppersmithing #metalsmithing #instasmithy #metalstudio #copperwork #forgedmetal #copperware #jewelrydesign #fairbanks #alaska #handmade  Prepping a liver of sulphur finish on some silver pieces tonight. A final polish is up next. #silver #sterlingsilver #sterling #silversmith #instasmithy #metalwork #jewelrydesign #metalsmithing #metalstudio #fairbanks #alaska #handmade  Malachite and sterling silver. Experimenting with my phone in low light. #silver #sterlingsilver #sterling #silversmith #instasmithy #metalwork #jewelrydesign #metalsmithing #metalstudio #fairbanks #alaska #handmade  Currant leaves, book leaves, sterling bookmark. #garnet #silver #sterlingsilver #silversmith #instasmithy #metalwork #jewelrydesign #metalsmithing #metalstudio #fairbanks #alaska #handmade  Some progress on this currant leaf and garnet pendant over the weekend. All that is left to do is to burnish the bezel and soften the details. I've been obssessed with currant leaves this winter! #silver #sterlingsilver #sterling #silversmith #instasmithy #metalwork #jewelrydesign #metalsmithing #metalstudio #fairbanks #alaska #handmade
