"There is no crying in jewelry"

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.

there is most definitely crying in jewelry! I had two "meltdowns" in two weeks over porous castings not soldering, and projects breaking. Luckily, there is usually another metalsmith around to comfort you :)

we certainly cry... and laugh, swear, and occasionally bleed over our pieces as well. just remember to pack bandaids and tissues. and steel wool to clean the tears off the tools.
