Hand study

I was looking around for a pair of hands to draw and I found a very nice photo on Pinterest of these hands. I really love how you can see a lot of the wrinkles and details in this aged hand. I'm always trying to get better at drawing hands even if its from a photo. I find it to be a good exercise to draw them from both a live model and a photograph.

Brooklyn Charm Class

Last Saturday I had the pleasure to take a class at The Brooklyn Charm Shop in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. I went with a friend of mine to the wire wrapping rings and pendants class and we both came out with two pieces. Everyone in the class made one ring and one pendant but they all came out looking very unique. I'm going to try to make more rings on my own now that I can make them with found objects. Here is a link to the Brooklyn Charm Shop,
