Jimmy the jewelry maker?

Jimmy's been interested in working with metal and learning how to make some unusual jewelry with some of the odd bits and pieces he can get out of the trash at his job. Because they do some one of a kind sort of things in the machine shop, they also produce some one of a kind, kinda trash.

Today he took some old turquoise beads that we had and some of the copper glob bits that he had brought home from work and made quite a lovely pendant, in my opinion.

I don't think he's wondering anymore what he might like to try doing when he retires. :)


I've been so inspired by Elaine and Leau's great photography that I've decided to play some with taking (and messing with) some photos myself. Leau pointed me in the direction of some cool camera apps for my Droid. It was a really boring and lousy phone camera before I discovered Camera Zoom FX and a bunch of other fun apps with different effects. The photo above is a combination of some of the stuff from the Droid camera apps and a little bit Photoshopped.
