  9. Jewelry for the Warrior Woman

    Gorgeous jewelry blogger Becky Stone has wonderful timing with her story about “the Warrior Woman” in InDesign Jewelry‘s fall edition. As Becky writes, “The Warrior Woman is a power player and she knows it.”

    This is my obviously my type of lady: Most of my jewelry designs are inspired by female badasses. Becky selected several pieces of jewelry for her Warrior Woman, including my Empress Matilda sword necklace.

    Click for Becky’s original tweet.
    I adore her introduction to the Matilda:

    “The Warrior Woman is never without her weapons: her wit, her mind, her heart. But given the chance to make things more literal without sacrificing elegance, she can’t resist.”

    I wrote a detailed post about the Matilda necklace and matching sword earrings in June.

  10. The new Bosch GKF125CE Colt Palm

    Bosch’s Colt router has been a hugely popular model, and for a long time. I find myself easily trusting that Bosch designed the GKF125CE to be a worthwhile upgrade. At the least, it’s more powerful. At best, it’s more powerful and has several years of ergonomics research contributing to superior user-friendliness.

    The previous/current generation model, PR20EVS, is rated at 1 hp and 5.6A, compared to the new one’s 1.25 hp and 7.0A motor rating. It’s less expensive though, at $99 for the router compared to the new one’s $129 price. There’s also an established accessories ecosystem supporting it. A plunge base for the GKF125CE will be out soon, and I anticipate that it won’t be long before its accessory lineup matches that of the PR20EVS.
