About this time last year I completed my mechanical dragonfly, the "Anax Imperator Machina".  I've decided to make a collection of jewelry based on the dragonfly its self, primarily the wings. 

 The little wings I made are just like the ones on the dragonfly but slightly smaller, they'll be earrings and necklace, and hopefully a ring and bracelet as well, but we'll see once I have them.  The castings are supposed to be headed my way May 12th, later then I hoped but still in time for May!

I'm also making a limited run of handmade books about the dragonfly.   This will include the sketches and drawings I used to create it and photographs as well.  I'm really excited about making these!  Like most of my packaging they'll be made of sustainable Lokta paper and recycled paper, and I've been working diligently working on the inner page layout to get it finished this week.

Here are some images of the paper and bookmaking supplies to keep you intrigued. 

New bag

So I don't treat myself to many new things. I'm one to wear something out until it's rendered useless, but I've been eyeing this messenger bag for months now and finally gave in.  

My old one lasted a solid 5 years, which was pretty impressive for such a cheap army surplus bag.  But alas the holes are getting to big and the fabric too worn and tattered to salvage... I could literally tear it in half if I wanted to.

I've neglected this poor blog for almost 4 months now, but that's about to change.  I'm revamping this and a few of my other pages because I have lots of projects coming up to build and I'm going to be posting all the progress here.  Check back soon, all the changes will take place in the next few days.
