What is it about fire? Even making a couple of head pins is fun! I had an idea for some earrings, so I just nipped off to the kitchen, fired up my torch, and made a couple; and I'll be switched if I don't feel better. There is something wonderful about melting metal; no matter how often I do it, it always fills me with awe. I am always inspired by the way the molecules pull together into a spherical shape under heat.
Draw your own metaphors from this one, I'm keeping mine close today!
