Status Update

Well I officially have too many things to do but here are some exciting new happenings and some things to look forward too. I received my new mouse pad today from my "Zazzle shop" and I am very happy to have it as I haven't had a mouse pad in years.

Original on left, mouse pad on right. "Psylocibin Sunset", Daniel Icaza, 2011, Mixed  Media

Besides a few unavoidable color differences in-between the  paint and the print, all the details are perfect and the print has a beautiful quality all its own. I can barely tell which is the original and which is the mouse pad!

"Satellite Rings" By Daniel Icaza, Fine Silver, Copper/Nickel Mokume-Gane 
 In other news I recently finished producing these five fine silver and copper/nickel mokume-gane rings which will soon be posted up for sale on my Etsy shop. (Click HERE to see what is currently for sale) I like to call these "Satellite Rings" just because they remind me of satellite dishes, not the most original thought ever but oh well, I think they look pretty sweet.

"Satellite Rings"
I really enjoy making these rings and I really like the way they look stacked together in groups. Hopefully I will be able to make more of these in different sizes and metal combinations soon. Perhaps I will even get a chance to make some fancier stacked rings with groupings of "satellites" (more things to do...).
Something else I am pretty excited about, is a joint venture Kaylee and I recently launched. We have been trying to put together an "Indie-GOGO" campaign to raise funds to expand our creative capabilities, so I will be sharing more info on that soon. Lastly, I have decided that this months entry in my "Works/Processes/ How Metal Works" section is going to be on soldering, so if you're interested in soldering come back soon to learn all about it.
Like I said I have to many things to do so that's all for now folks.
I'll be back soon, until next time.
Peace and Love
