The number of posts on this blog.


And to celebrate I present my return to jewellery making: a jointed perspex pendant.

I'd like to do more of this stuff. I bought myself a new sawframe from this totally boss jewellery maker supply store and everything. It smells so good in there. There is everything you could possibly dream of for polishing, cutting, soldering, watchmaking and more. It is expensive but it is love.

Who needs to buy groceries when there are tools to be bought?

End times

Remember this entry?

Well the thing at the bottom turned into this in Kellyville, the vanguard of Sydney's urban sprawl.

Moving House: my major work for honours.

Goodbye, university. I will miss your well-furnished workshop and value-for-money dumpsters.

The mad, last minute rush is here.

I can't believe how close I came to forgetting how amazing it is to make an object that challenges you. That isn't a slightly refigured version of something you've done a thousand ways before.

All it took was the terror of the end of year deadline breathing down my neck.

It's so disturbingly close to all being over now.

Goodbye education system.

Goodbye student public transport concessions.
