There’s lots of new faces following me at the moment, thanks for joining the Diamonds and Rust journey!
Thought I’d introduce myself a wee bit, here’s some stuff that like 2 of you might find vaguely interesting or possibly relate to;
• I’ve been silversmithing full time since April; it’s insane how quickly your skills develop when you’re able to funnel time and money into them. This also means that each time you make a purchase from me, you’re paying my wages 😆
• I love motorcycles. I’ve been playing on motorbikes since I was 17/18. I’m currently rebuilding my Kawasaki in the hopes of getting it running properly again, and my partner and I are rebuilding his Triumph Bonneville Chopper together - I’m learning a lot about bikes. We also have two little Honda off-road projects which are in the works.
• Musically, I’m a heavy metal girl through and through. The first album I remember listening to and thinking HOLY HELL THIS IS ITTTT was a vinyl of Ancient Dreams by @candlemass_sweden
. When I was a teenager I was pretty stuck up about my music tastes “I’m too metal for you peasants” kinda thing. I got over myself and branched out in my music taste A LOT. You can catch me boogying to Dolly Parton right after moshing with my dog to Anthrax.
• I studied Archaeology at university, but was “that person who would probably not be in lectures” for a couple of reasons, aaaand then I just thought “do I even want to BE an archaeologist?” So dropped out it was definitely the right decision.
If you’ve read this far, well done, and I apologise for any brain haemorrhages you may have had trying to read my ramblings. BE EXCELLENT TO EACHOTHER!
