machine slots and timely thoughts
Lately I’ve been thinking about the differences between the tools I can use and the tools my CNC milling machines can use. For starters, they can create slots in metal that I can’t because of how they carve it using another rapidly spinning piece of metal (called an end mill, which looks like a drill bit).

making bracelets...at last
Weeeeee! Yesterday I got some new tools in the mail, one of which is a bracelet former for creating some very nice looking C-shaped bracelets! I'm excited about this, especially cuz it also means I can get into making armbands and other pieces that would make good use of that form.

website update!
I'd like to center the connection between what I think about and what I make, so I'm putting my blog posts front and center on this website because that's where this all starts with me. I sit with shifting thoughts about Blackness, chronoliberation, and anything else that fits between the two, in order to create my jewelry.
