Episode 10: Contrasting Jewelry Textures, Fiber Discs, and Sleep
In this blogpost I will touch on some of the subjects I covered the JewelryMonk Podcast Episode 10:
First I have been reading this book this week by Greg McKeown called Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less. It has a lot to do with business and business practices, but so much more. There is a chapter called “Protecting The Asset” which covers the fact that most of us suffer from sleep deprivation. I cover some benefits of getting enough sleep and some of the effects of poor sleeping habits. It is quite “eye-opening”.
Next I answered a question from an email I received about keeping track of time spent on a project, pricing, and collecting information on trials, errors, projects and experiments. I won’t give you the rundown here, but I will give you a hint….. Evernote plays a huge part in my system.

I also had a Jewelry Tip of the Week where I covered some tool I use in texturing jewelry:
Ball Bur….. using a .5mm – 1.0mm ball bur to texture.
Electric Engraver with steel a modified bur or a diamond tip.
Flat Graver Blade to bright cut an edge
Lastly I talked about my pick for the Cool Tool of the Week:
Micro Fiber Separating Disc or Snap-on Sanding Disc to create a florentine texture.
Micro Fiber Separating Disc
They can be used as a cut off wheel, a sanding or filing disc, and a texturing tool. Flexing, 0.30 mm in thickness and reinforced.
And we bring in the Christmas Season with some Christmas Music:
