I don't know if it is a good thing or a bad thing that I love teaching and my students so much. I think most would say they like it and yes it has its drawbacks. I am enjoying checking blogs this wintery Saturday evening. And I came across a photo of the whiteboard in the studio on Ms. Jaxxon's blog: "there is no crying in jewelry". To which I am compelled to respond: of course jewelers cry, how do you think we get through making these magical, heart pounding, wonderful objects? Just don't get your tears on the tools....there is salt in your tears.
