I love getting to talk with and work with other artists. Bouncing ideas off each other and coming up with new projects is so fun! I've recently been working with a friend, Phillip, who owns Metaling in Art and does metalwork and woodworking.
Our first project started with me designing a logo for his business and then engraving this on both some wood pieces for tables as well as some steel tubing for table legs and other metal projects.
I then had a friend ask if I could engrave on silverware to be made into jewelry. I ran a few sample pieces and Phillip did the cutting and drilling for me. We started with a necklace and are working on a key chain. Thinking about adding rings and bracelets as well.
And when Phillip stopped by the other day, we brainstormed ideas for cutting boards and recipe boxes that I have lying around that have blemishes and aren't suitable to sell as-is. I can't stand to just toss them, but have tons of they stacking up! So we're hoping to have new ideas for those soon as well!
Have you worked on any collaborations lately?
