Coming Soon: "Njordwood Alchemy™"
It's funny where some of my inspiration comes from, and even more so where I "work things out" in that place I use my "mind's toolshop". See, I have a glorious view of the river and ridge edge here, its reminiscent of a outlet you might see in Norway, Scotland, or Ireland... From the bathroom.   For decades now, I've made my way doing things I love yet one elusive corner always has been presentation. I've done jewelry, leather, accessories, furniture, name it- yet it's always been the presentation that I can't ever seem to be completely satisfied with. Given the recent couple of years and my bringing my bronzework to life I found myself set upon by that old beast.
