Everyone always wonders why art cost so much, next time you buy something handmade think of the tools and space it takes to create such amazing work and know you are supporting something amazing.

My cousin's husband has been in the car painting business for his whole life, Friday was his last day at his job as a car painter, he was excepted into the police academy at Kalamazoo Valley Comunity College. We are so proud of him for taking this huge career leep. He has been going to school for many years working toward this goal.
Today I got a huge box of paint slag also known as Fordite made from overspray of cars Henry has painted. Since it didn't come from the Ford plant I'm going to call it Hedite. Stay tuned for the Hedite jewelry to come.
