Hi! My name is Sarah and I run Daughter of Mercury Metalworks!

I create badass metal art that is able to be worn! If I am completely honest, making it all wearable is more of an excuse to make tonnes of cool stuff, rather than the reason I make cool stuff (does that make sense??). I have artistic purposes and reasoning behind everything I make, things that I try to explore through my making (which I will write about maybe elsewhere or when this is updated), but when it all comes down to it, if it isn't cool, if it isn't badass and doesn't look like it might bear it's teeth and try to bite you, then I don't make it! 

Equally important to me and my practice as a metalworker/jeweller/maker is sharing the experience, I think it is vital/essential to let people see that the world is malleable in all senses, you personally can change the landscape, physically, artistically, politically, and the way I feel I can contribute is by letting people into my creative process, to see the nuts and bolts and all the decision making to see that every human being is a creative person and that they should not just accept that something is the way it is and cannot be another way.

For now, the rewards I will be able to offer is to continue to produce the content that is seen on instagram, facebook, pinterest, my website, etc., the donations that you pay will allow me to spend more time on upkeeping and, in time, expanding the online content of my work, as relying solely on income from sales requires me to work too fast to take time to go into great depth and detail. 

So yeah! I think that is it for now, and I look forward to getting to know folks creating more awesome stuff!

Goals
$0 of $300 per month
At this level I can afford to focus more on producing content like written blogs, videos and streaming about everything required to design and make objects using metal, along with every piece I create, rather than relying on sales which require me to work too fast to take you along with me in depth. A full look into the process includes design development, analysis (of design, technique, critical evaluation, etc), how-to's, exploration of materials, and of course real time of the making its self!
