Hippie Time

I may not have owned any hand sanitizer when the COVID-19 outbreak began, but I did have a wide variety of strange craft supplies to keep me busy when I couldn't go to work anymore. In the fabric section of my personal store I found many yards of this embroidered stuff that might be silk!... Continue Reading →

Social Distancing Socks

Well, I've been spending a lot more time with my projects. My career is in fine jewelry, which is pretty much the definition of non-essential, and I work out of New York City. The Covid-19 pandemic means that I have been called upon to help save the world by staying home. That's okay. Luckily I've... Continue Reading →

Adam Savage EDC ONE

A few weeks ago I finally cracked out the plans for the Savage Industries Every Day Carry bag. I love bags, but not fancy ones.

Here is the finished product: I cut this one a bit shorter than I usually prefer, but since it had an unusually wide, boxy... Continue Reading →

3D Printed English Bobbins

My first 3D printed bobbins came out so well that I knew I'd need to design some more!   I decided to give another popular bobbin type a go, the English style lace bobbin.   English bobbins have a long thin shape and a hole in one end to recieve "spangles," usually glass beads on...

3D Printer Madness

There was a new addition to my household a couple of weeks ago that I am really enjoying.  It’s a secondhand Replicator 2 3D printer by Makerbot. The Replicator 2 prints polylactic acid, a hard, shiny, biodegradable plastic that’s pretty easy for the home user.  The printer is also fairly user friendly, as the seller... Continue Reading →
