Blog Carnival

The majestic fountain at UT

University of Texas Photo by Jim Nix/Nomadic Pursuits

Each month some of the Etsymetal team members pick a topic and write about it. This month the topic is Back to School.

The questions are: "Where did you go to school? Are you still a student? What kind of student were/are you? If you had the opportunity to go back to school, would you? Where and what would you study?"

I went to school in Texas. I lived in Marshall (which is in East Texas) in grade school and part of Junior high. And then in 8th grade we moved to McKinney, north of Dallas. Then after high school, I went to The University of Texas at Austin. I was a good student in High School and in College and I enjoyed school very much. I definitely would go back to school now if I had a chance. I would love to finish my Fine Arts degree and possibly my Masters back at The University of Texas. In College I think I was trying to be "practical" by studying business like my Dad.  I started out in the Business school studying Economics, Business calculus (which I loved) and Accounting and Statistics (did not love).  I transferred into the Communications school and studied Advertising. I was still trying to be practical by thinking I wanted to be in the Advertising world. My Senior year while working directly with Advertising Executives from the Big Cities (Chicago and New York) putting together "Advertising Day" on campus, I realized Advertising was just not for me. I looked into transferring into the Fine Arts program. But to transfer at that point it would have been four more full years. Looking back, I wish I had done those four years. I graduated with my BS in Advertising and then continued to take classes in the Fine Arts program for two more years while working part-time at a Florist. I loved being in the studio for full days creating. I loved painting and drawing and  discovered a Metalworking class my second year there. I never got to finish my Metals/Fine Arts program and  would love very much too. After that I continued to learn by apprenticing for a Seventh Generation Jeweler from Belgium. He was tough to work for, but I learned a lot. I wish I could have stuck it out longer with him. Recently, I found a Metals Class at the Arts Center  in St Petersburg that I hope to be able to take so that I can continue learning new skills.

If I really had the chance to go back to school now, I would love too. I would finish my Fine Arts degree and would love to study Illustration, Art History,  and Textile designs along with my Metalsmithing. Hopefully someday.

Inspiration for Ring a Day

Package from Victoria pic1

On Monday I received a package in the mail from Victoria (Experimetal). Originally, the idea and an inspiration package came from Kathryn Riechert to Victoria.  The rules are: if you open a package, you should create a ring from the piece or be inspired from it within 24 hours. This package could not have come at a better time for me. It is the best gift I could ever ask for.
A gift full of inspiration and magic. I can not wait to see what is inside!
XOXO. Thank you Victoria and KathrynR!
