sara_bug managed to make a few things today in spite of my mangled digit! i took lefty index out of his comfy antiseptic & gauze home so you could catch a glimpse of my bad luck along with these gorgeous new pyrite temple earrings. ironically, pyrite is thought to bring good luck to its bearers!

sara_bug that sad moment last night i knew my happy little weekend jewelry making sessions were shot to hell. apparently i should keep metalsmithing and stay out of the kitchen. knives are sharp, mmmmmkay?!?! #excessivegauze #ouch #jewelerproblems #forreal #damnyourainbowcharddamnyou 2w
  •   purple_fern NO! What crazy timing AND driving yourself to the ER? I am beyond impressed lady! Hmm, book... Have you read Wild yet?!? 2w

  •   moiraklime Ouch! You okay? Stitches? How long will you be away from the bench? 2w
  •   sara_bug thanks for all the love peeps! @moiraklime - no stitches cuz I went so far into the nail just glad they didn't have to surgically remove the nail like they initially said! trying to work but kinda difficult - apparently the left index finger is important in metalsmithing... 1w

sara_bug when the past few weeks of my wildly lovely little life got a bit bumpy, i decided to make myself something - very much a rarity nowadays! over the weekend i sat down with this gorgeous crazy lace agate with sagenite, sun shining through my workbench window, Neil Young's magical voice my only company - and i created a ring, just for me. #sarabjewelry #metalsmith #instasmithy #cocktailring #treatyoself 2w

sara_bug i fancied to infuse my new ring with some intention, a mantra to carry with me. my chosen words came from a Robert Frost quote about life:
------- "In three words I can sum up everything I've learned about life: it goes on." -------
because, my friends... it goes on. it always goes on... #sarabjewelry #metalsmith #instasmithy #mantra

sara_bug so very proud of this lovely & talented gal @seedandstar! Kate was one of my very first artist friends when i moved to Indy and she has given me such a tremendous amount of love, encouragement, and inspiration. her show Dreams About Flying opened tonight at @harrisoncenterarts and it was so amazing to walk in and see all of her beautiful courage and hard work displayed on those walls - it truly brought tears to my eyes! congratulations, my dear friend! #dreamsaboutflying #proudascanbe 3w

sara_bug spent the better part of my lovely day cleaning, organizing, and listening to records! even cleared off my dresser, sifted through boxes of jewelry, and cleaned up some of my early Sara B. Jewelry rings! #sarabjewelry #analog #rings #halfwaytovintage #dustylungs 4w
  •   rkp_thatsme Are those flat black beauties on your etsy? 4w
  •   sara_bug Good morning @rkp_thatsme! These rings are actually from my personal stash so not for sale. But I do have plenty of beach stones and I'd love to create something for you if you're interested! 4w

  •   moiraklime Jox? 2mon
  •   sara_bug @angelahogg - I feel the same way! I look through all the fossil and mineral drawers, stare at the antique tools, ask about the specimen creatures, and generally just feel like I'm in a dream state there! 2mon
  •   sara_bug @moiraklime - have you never been?!? it is crazy little corner of the universe! 2mon
