ALCHEMY IN PROGRESS...or...how looks like work in my studio

This post  I write to show how looks like process of jewelry creation. Very often people are surprise when they visit me in studio and see many machines and tool what are characteristic for men work, not for gentle women hands.  This work is dirty and hard - small smithy. Enjoy a virtual tour!

Ovaj post pišem da pokažem kako izgleda proces stvaranja nakita u tehnikama koje radim. Ovo nije jednostavno spajanje gotovih elemenata. Često su ljudi iznenađeni kada me posjete u ateljeu i vide sve strojeve i alate koji su karakteristični za muške poslove, ne za nježne ženske ruke. Ovo je prljav i težak posao - mala kovačnica.
Uživajte u vitualnom razgledavanju!

all pieces are small so sometimes I drill the finger
svi dijelovi su mali, ponekad probušim i prst

when you work fast sometimes wire is still hot enough to burn the fingers...bthw...human flesh have smell like chicken ;))
kada se radi brzo ponekad žica bude još uvijek jako vruća pa se sprže prsti...tek da znate...pečeno ljudsko meso ima miris kao piletina ;))


sculptured ring in the middle of process, still dirty from fire. Look at him how he looks like in the shop: https://www.etsy.com/listing/253674127/contemporary-mixed-metal-ring-coral?ref=shop_home_active_5
skulptorski oblikovan prsten još uvijek prljav od vatre i lotanja. Pogledajte ga u internet trgovini kako sada izgleda

my hand, I call this silver manicure and my studio is manicure room ;)). But now my hand looks beter, coconut oil is helpful
moja ruka. ovo zovem "srebrena manikura", a moj atelje je soba za manikuru ;)) sada mi ruke izgledaju bolje, kokosovo ulje je učinkovito.




sometimes I must paint my hand in white for photo shooting. This is how she looks like after washing :)
ponekad moram obojati ruku u bijelo za fotografiranje prstenja. Ovako mi ruka izgleda nakon što ju operem :)

magic happens here when all organic material become copper - alchemy
čarolija se događa kada svaka organska materija postaje bakar - alkemija

My corner is still clean and neat and ready for new action 
moj kutak je ovdje uredan i spreman za nove akcije

  2. Hi William my dear friend! I have less and less clean space for walk, for my self. My studio is more dedicate to machines and tools then to my self as owner :)) I have just order vertical drill machine, ultrasonic jewelry cleaner and metal oval and round meander for making bracelet....and some gem stones. Although I have a lot of tool I find some more what I really need. I have expression: some women's purchase heels, I purchase tools and machines hehee
