I’ve been accumulating a few of miscellaneous web links lately and it’s time to post them.

Lost Wax Casting Process
From Beth Cyr Jewelry, this is a great tutorial about the lost wax casting process, which is something I’d really like to learn.

Amazon Kindle
Mick and I each bought one of these a couple of months ago.  We LOVE them.  Instead of watching TV every night we’re reading and we’re much smarter now.  Mick wrote two blog posts about it:  Embracing the Kindle and Sharing Two Kindles if you’re interested.

Works in Progress
These photos are from Kathryn Reichert who sells beautiful jewelry on Etsy.  In this pictorial, she shows how she makes bezels for pendants.

Shapely Prose
Kate Harding’s Fat Acceptance blog.  I don’t agree with everything she says, but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t make a lot of great points and body acceptance is an important issue for men and women alike.  Of particular interest is the BMI Project.

Craft Boom
Lisa Lam of U-Handbag’s blog about starting and running a crafty business.  U-Handbag always makes me wish I could sew (well, sew better).

In other news, I got another treasury today and it features some really great Etsy jewelry artists:


A note about treasuries.  They expire within two or three days, so links I post will quickly become outdated.

    You are QUEEN of all treasury! If I had a lap top, I think I’d have one by now. Once my man is home, I try to be done with work. You have to be a real night owl to get one (or so it seems).
    Thanks for the links. Always fun to see new toys and goodies (especially rings!)
    You lost me on the Kindle. Too tech for me. I can see why your man loves it. I prefer books.
