21  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / B/C Sometimes Simple is Best on: June 12, 2010 12:03:06 PM
My latest design is Groove.  A slightly domed ring with light groove texture. 

The ring was carved in wax then cast.  Once polished I decided to add the grooves.  And I love the results.
22  COOKING / Vegetarian / Vegan / Faux Pho! - Vietnamese Classic Goes Veggie on: May 22, 2010 08:02:38 PM

I made pho.  Yummy scrummy pho! 

So very good I ate it all! 

The recipe is at http://www.bglassdesigns.com/b-glass-designs/2010/05/faux-pho-.html.  If you prefer not to use fish sauce sub 3 tbs soy sauce and keep adding to taste. 
23  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Textured SterlingSilver Earrings on: May 19, 2010 06:27:09 AM
I was in the mood to make myself a pair of dangly earrings with a little pizazz.  Since this was an experiment I used silver laminate leftover from another project.    

I added a bit of texture for fun.  Then cut out circles with a little wonky-ness.  Perfect circles seemed too tidy for these earrings.  I also made bezels.  

Then I put it all together and viola!  A fun pair of earrings with a updated 70s feel.  They make me want to boogie and wear harem pants.  Is that so wrong?  
24  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Wire Gauge Conversion on: May 16, 2010 06:01:35 AM
I am learning my jewelry making skills outside the US where gauge is metric.  I make all my own materials including wire.  I would love to be able to know the wire gauge I am using to start making tutorials.  Sadly, I can't seem to find a chart. 

I am hoping someone knows of one.
25  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Posting Videos of my Jewelry Making Endeavors on My Blog on: May 08, 2010 03:32:38 PM
I've decided to start posting videos on my blog.  The first is a quick explanation of how I make my own sterling silver.  It includes a quick video of me using the rolling mill.

Is there anything in particular anyone is interested in seeing?  If I can I would be more than happy to oblige.
26  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / My Latest Organic Piece UPDATED - W/Second Ring on: March 11, 2010 03:38:25 PM
I used to do very modern pieces with crisp lines.  And while I still love that look lately, I have been leaning towards the rustic and organic.  Actually, I have been crazy into organic pieces lately and this is my latest -

The stone is CZ.  Maybe the next one will be with a more expensive stone.

Someone has already offered to buy it.  But can I part with it?  Sigh.

27  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Carrot Ginger Soup and Corn Fritters on: March 08, 2010 09:25:40 AM
I originally posted the fritters in the vegetarian section.  But good food is good food even if it is vegetarian.  So I decided to post the pic of my soup and fritters here. 

The soup is an invention (as far as the recipe) of my own and corn fritters are from Mark Bittman's How to Cook Everything Vegetarian. 

28  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Crockpot Oatmeal - Yummy! on: March 08, 2010 09:18:16 AM
Twice I week I have class and don't get home until 7:30 pm.  When I get back my hubby is always hungry and I am short on time patience for cooking.  So I have started making crockpot oatmeal.  So tasty, so easy, so cheap and oh so healthy too. 

2 cups oatmeal (do not use the quick cook kind)
6 cups water
handful of craisins
handful of raisins
a pinch of salt
a cinnamon stick
freshly grated nutmeg

Put in on low and about 7-9 hours later you have a yummy meal.  Sometimes I add mashed banana or nuts. 
29  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / How to Pop Popcprn Old School Style on: March 07, 2010 07:36:51 AM
I like popcorn when it is fresh popped and crunchy and not out of a microwaved bag.  But I am afraid of doing it.  Anyone popped the popcorn old school and lived to tell?
30  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Pie Crust Fail on: February 27, 2010 04:59:53 PM
Sometimes losing focus for even a single second can lead to ruin.  Case in point, my coconut pie crust.  I am feeling a little under the weather and tried to rush.  Rather than scoop out the beans I tried jiggling them out at a slight angle.....can anyone guess what happened?  I jiggled a GIANT chunk of the pie crust out causing a break that only got worse as I tried to fix it until the whole thing ended up on my counter. 

A pie crust fail!  I'll try again tomorrow.
