Custom-Made Brackets in their New Home

Jeff makes many custom projects during fact, it makes demos exciting from a blacksmithing standpoint, at least from his point of view.  He always walks in with ideas and pieces of metal cut for those ideas, and he rarely ends up making those pieces.  Instead, he loves to take ideas from our visitors and forge custom pieces for them.  These brackets are one such piece.  They are unlike anything I've ever seen before, yet there are perfect for their purpose.  In fact, they are quite beautiful and it makes me want to hang a wind chime from one!

We were at a demo this afternoon -- a small, lovely demo and someone asked about a piece I had displayed on the table.  It was a bracket, a companion piece to the ones pictured here.  And, I got to tell the story of these brackets, and it made me want to show the brackets in their new home.   We are very thankful to the Keith family for sharing these photos with us.  We can't wait to see you again!   And, if you are interested in the one remaining bracket of this type, please just let us know.  It's waiting for its home!
