I must start this post with a bit of a confession. I love superheroes. When I was a little girl, I would run around with my hooded coat on my head as an impromptu cape, and dream that I could fly. Now that I’m a grown up I wish for the super-power of never forgetting anything, and always being on time.
It’s in the studio, however, that I wish most ardently for super powers. After a day filled with repeated file-punctures, and burning myself for the umpteenth time, I wish to be indestructible. Which is why today I’m going to talk about that famous indestructible metal, Adamantium.
Okay, not really. Adamantium is actually not a real metal. It is, unfortunately, fictional. But this brings up a very interesting question- at least to me. There are currently 86 metals and several more remain to be discovered that I could conceivably discuss on these Metal Monday posts. With alloys and such, the list is longer.
But do you want me to talk about all these metals? This is, after all primarily a jewelry blog. I ask, because I don’t want you all to get bored with the minute variations in silver and gold alloys. They are intensely fascinating to me- but are in reality a fairly dry subject.
Do you want me to continue? Should I expand into something else on Mondays? Leave a comment, and let me know!
