Occasionally I'll make a run of jewelry for presents and to sell. Here are a couple of different projects that I've done in the past several years.

Some time ago I was asked if I might be able to make a set of Moscow Mule copper mugs. A quick google search for what that actually meant told me that yeah I would probably be able to handle that. The actual order for the set fell through, but I figured I might as well make a prototype anyway.
I have been trying to do more lighting recently. This piece grew out of a desire to use big copper bowl as a lampshade, and a need for a light over my dinner table in my apartment. I'm really happy with the final product, it was a long build but I learned a lot about wiring, welding, and just how much time it takes to raise a big copper bowl like that.

A while back my friend Nate asked if I would be interested in making a sort of copper kettle for him. He is into the whole slow pour drip coffee scene so he was looking for something to boil water in that would be able to pour a nice gentle trickle of water onto the grounds. I thought about it for a while, said hey why not, and just kinda dived in head first. Here's the finished piece, process pics after the jump.

I had an idea for a sort of bedside lamp kicking around in my head for a while, and one day I found myself at the hardware store for another project and said what the hell lets get some material for this this too. Stood in front of the plumbing section looking at connections and nipples for about an hour figuring stuff out in my head and got everything I needed (almost- only one return trip to get a different connector). Also got a "make your own lamp" kit that had pretty much everything else I needed on the lighting side of things. This is how it turned out.
