BIG news everybody - i've been WIRED  
somehow i hear that subject announced in the Professor's voice from Futurama. heh.

Anyway, I've been back about 1 week now and it has been a crazy busy time. Crazy. i will have photos from El Salvador I promise. There were exploding Volcanos. well... not quite exploding but shooting out big gouts of ash! clouds of it.

Anyway, I'm super super excited today. Acutally I got a copy of the WIRED edition in paper earlier but now it is up online.  It is a magazine I have read for years and years... but never expected to get a mention in.  Its a real geek rag, so hey... who would have guessed?  Clive Thompson bought one of my pieces last year and said he might mention me in an article.. in April.. but this was better than I expected.  My poor little shop is fairly understocked. It will improve though by the weekend :D

WIRED: The Revolution in Micromanufacturing

For all you ETSY people... do share it around... its quite a cool article on ETSY.

Well.. i had.
alas, the plane took a wrong turn and the volcano exploded somewhere over Columbia. The plane almost crashed and due to the loud complaints on board we were forced to jettison it. Don't you read the News?
they evacuated 8k.... but left the cows and chickens which turned to stone just like in Pompeii.
next year we'll go to Columbia and i'll bring you back a lava chicken.

I asked her for a volcano, too. This is the WORST vacation I've never had! [::sobs::]

That is amazing, c_z! Interesting article, too, and nicely sandwiched by glowing mentions of your work. I hope you'll be free of that crazy-making job soon now that your steampunk jewelry business will be taking off!

This is so exciting! I've been meaning to do a post on Etsy, on you and all of the artists and artisans whose work I have been adoring (and buying), so maybe this will inspire me. I have seen other steampunk there, but your jewelry is just so much--more artistic--beautiful--perfect. Well, you know I'm a fan.
