January was beautiful first of all because I had my holidays at work!
*I planned some travels which happend and everything went smoothly.
*I travelled to Frankfurt to visit a friend, but about this travel I'll tell more in the next blog post.
*Later, I went to Barcelona and joined KeumBoo workshop (attaching pure gold to silver) at Arnald Climent jewelry school. I was pleased so much to know Arnald in person!
*I spent time with a very special friend who took me to Sebasiao Salgado photography exhibition.
After my trips I felt renewed and inspired by my friends and events.
*I worked in the studio on both pottery and silversmith projects.
*I had to prepare pieces for KeumBoo workshop thing that forced me to start sawing metal. I had all the instruments already but couldn't find a rigth moment to start (sincerely I didn't feel comfortable to go out of my confort zone, but finally did it!). I made some exciting to me pieces, then finished with gold.
*I prepared and tested some glazes.
*I made a plan for the month for my pottery projects which I didn't complete, but I'll catch up in February.
*I met with friends and more friends and I spent more time with my kids!
*I enjoyed cooking a lot yummy food for my family and friends
