In Episode 118, we talk about what it means to apply grace in difficult situations when someone does a heinous or unacceptable action and then they plead for grace. Are we supposed to forgive them and what do we need to do in those types of situations? Although God is always eager to forgive us, He asks that we repent and forgive others as prerequisites for forgiveness. In certain cases, repentance and atonement may also be necessary. How could we pray the way Jesus teaches us if we don't want to forgive? How could we ask God to forgive us if we hold grudges or let resentment drag us down? Let's find out and go bigger, better, and deeper in God's word!  Episode Timestamps: Intro – [00:00]The Golden Rule – [04:50]What Does Grace Look Like under the Golden Rule? – [07:17]Anger vs Grace – [08:40]Tough Love – [11:37]Final Thoughts – [13:20]Outro – [14:02]  Biblical References: Matthew 7:12Luke 6:31  Book References: Alpha Christians: A Manifesto for Menhttps://www.amazon.com./s?k=9781946654304&i=stripbooks&linkCode=qs  About Our Host: Bill Giovannetti is the Senior Pastor at Pathway Church, Redding, California — an experienced senior pastor with a demonstrated history of working in the religious institutions industry.

Dr. Keefer and Decouple producer Dylan Moon reflect on their visit to Ontario's Nuclear Waste Management Organization (NWMO). The NWMO is tasked with designing, siting, and building a Deep Geological Repository (DGR) for the long-term storage of used nuclear fuel. Although decades of engineering and a current annual budget of over $100 million have led to a robust and safe storage solution, the organization's "gold standard" consent-based siting process leaves no clear path for the project to ever break ground.

What you'll learn in this episode: Why an empty mind is the key to creative exploration The difference between an artist-jeweler and a jeweler or artist alone What fair-trade gold is, and how Ute became a pioneer in the ethical jewelry movement Why greenwashing is the newest trend threatening the ethical jewelry market How jewelry creates connections, even when someone wouldn't wear a piece themselves About Ute Decker Ute Decker, born 1969, Germany, lives and works in London, UK. The jewels of Ute Decker are described as “a powerful statement” that “sets a shining ethical example” (Financial Times). The Economist 1843 compares her “avant-garde sculptural pieces” to “swirling sculptures” while Christie's simply calls them “wearable works of art”. Ute's pieces are exhibited internationally and have won prestigious awards including Gold Awards from The Goldsmiths' Craft and Design Council, UK. Public collections include the Victoria & Albert Museum, UK; the Crafts Council, UK; the Goldsmiths' Company, UK; the Spencer Museum, USA; Musée Barbier-Mueller, Switzerland; and the Swiss National Museum. As a political economist-turned-journalist-turned-artist jeweler, Ute Decker is a pioneer of the international ethical jewelery movement. She works predominately in recycled silver and was one of the first worldwide to work in Fairtrade Gold. Additional Resources: Website  Instagram Ute's Facebook Ute's Jewelry Facebook Photos Available on TheJewelryJourney.com  Transcript: When it comes to ethical jewelry, artist-jeweler Ute Decker is the real deal. She was one of the first people to use fair-trade gold when it became available in the U.K., and she has spent her career advocating for the use of truly ethically sourced materials in the jewelry industry. Above all, she's proven that ethical can be beautiful: her sculptural works have won several awards and are in the collection of museums worldwide. She joined the Jewelry Journey Podcast to talk about what fair trade means; how she approaches the creative process; and what makes an artist-jeweler. Read the episode transcript here.     Sharon: Hello, everyone. Welcome to the Jewelry Journey Podcast. This is the second part of a two-part episode. If you haven't heard part one, please go to TheJewelryJourney.com. Today my guest is Ute Decker, talking with us from London. Ute is an artist-jeweler who's known for her innovative method of sculpting, bending and twisting metal into three-dimensional, wearable sculptures. She works in fair-trade gold and recycled silver and is considered a pioneer in the international ethical jewelry movement. Welcome back.   So how did all of this lead you into recycled material? Was that something you decided you wanted to do, and that was it? How did it happen?   Ute: As we talked about at the beginning, as a teenager, I wanted to change the world. I was always quite environmentally mindful. Then studying political economics, working as a journalist, you think that is very far removed from being a creative, and at the time it certainly felt like a big break, but in hindsight I think it was an important apprenticeship I needed to take to become the jeweler I am today. As in political economics, you don't just look at the piece and take it as art for art's sake or design for design's sake. You want to know the meaning, the context, the economic, the social, the political, the gender.    All those different histories and intersectionalities, that's my training to look at those. As a journalist, your training is to ask questions, so when I started out making jewelry, I did ask questions. Like many people, I've seen the film “Blood Diamonds,” and I thought, “Oh well, thank god I don't work with diamonds. I work with metals.” Then I started to look into gold, and the story is very similar to “Blood Diamonds” with gold. Of course, my reaction was, “I can't possibly work with this kind of material. I can't be part of the status quo. I'd have blood on my hands. It's discretionary. It's something I'm making. There's absolutely no need for those horrible stories.” So, I researched quite a bit and asked many questions about ethics.    In 2009, when I started, there was no information out there whatsoever. In fact, I was met with a lot of hostility. Once you start asking about the ethics of jewelry, you're tainting the story because jewelry is sold as that beautiful, luxurious love, but it's such a tainted story. So, in the jewelry industry, those questions were certainly not welcome. I was met with either belittlement, “Don't you worry. Everything is fine,” or outright hostility. I think as a journalist that meant, O.K., if people avoid your questions, that means you're asking the right questions.    I searched high and low and found a like-minded person who's been very active in that field. I was one of the very first to work with fair-trade gold when it was launched in the U.K. It was together with Fair Trade and Fair Mined Gold. Those two organizations have now separated. I know in America more jewelers work with Fair Mined; in Europe, more work with Fair Trade, but it's very similar standards. The main thing is it's fully traceable. We know exactly where it comes from. I know from which mine in the highlands of Peru my gold is coming from. I know it's not smuggled out from the Congo, supporting atrocities there. I know it's not smuggled out of Russia or somewhere else. It's fully traceable, every single gram. I'm registered with the Fair Trade Foundation in the U.K. The mine is registered as well as the importer, and the refiner is registered. We all have a number and we all declare how much we buy, and it's fully traceable. As a smaller maker, I'm audited every two to three years. I have to be able to show every single invoice; every single gram, I have to account for. It's being checked. It is quite bureaucratic, but that is the guarantee. The whole fair-trade ethos is trade not aid. It is about paying a fair price rather than the small-scale miner selling to middlemen, middlemen exploitation. It's very much about dignity: avoiding child labor, more gender equality, environmental standards of not burning down the Amazon. Fair-trade gold and fair-mined gold is a little more expensive, but in the great scheme of things, it is worth it.   It's also quite interesting that we started with just 20 jewelers. In 2009, we launched jewelry. All the other jewelers were also very small, individual jewelers. The entire industry said, “Traceability is not possible. Our gold is clean.” Well, where does it come from? “It's clean.” But where? Traceability is impossible, we were told by the industry. Gold comes from all over the world, it's then refined mostly in hubs like Switzerland or Dubai. The gold from all over the world comes through those hubs and then is distributed again all over the world. Gold has no identity, and they said it is absolutely impossible to have traceability. So, as 20 tiny, little jewelers, and unimportant jewelers in the great scheme of things, we gave the proof of concept that it was something that is possible. The entire industry no longer could deny that this was a possibility. Sometimes you get so disheartened thinking, “Whatever I do as an individual, what difference could it possibly make? It couldn't be more than a drop in the ocean.” But the ocean is nothing but an accumulation of drops. We can change the waves. We can change. So, we have more power than we think we do.   Sharon: First, let me ask you: What is Fair Trade and Fair Mined? What is fair-trade gold?    Ute: I'll answer both of them together because they started out together. It was called Fair Trade and Fair Mined gold. Later those two organizations separated, but they wrote the standards together, so they're still very similar. When I say Fair Trade, you could almost consider it Fair Mined as well. They're almost interchangeable. I think I did once read the standard. It's pages and pages and pages of small print standards of environmental guidelines, of engaging with gender equality. It is about the minimum payments.    Quite often with small-scale miners, it's not a job you do for fun. Artisanal sounds romantic, but it's not. It's a dollar-a-day, often horrible job, sometimes bonded labor, sometimes involving an awful lot of child labor. All of that is why the Fair Trade Foundation or Fair Mined works with the mine for a long time to come up to standard with certain environmental standards. They have to form a cooperative. We pay a premium that is then invested into community development. Women have a voice. Child labor is not allowed. Those mines are audited, and for their efforts they receive more money. It's really enabling those miners to have more dignity, to live in a cleaner environment, to help protect the environment for all of us, and hopefully earn enough money for those children not to go down the shaft, but to go to school.    The question is, “Well, let's just not use any gold at all,” which I also heartily agree with. But as we said, these miners almost subsist on a dollar a day, quite a few of those small-scale miners around the world. 100 million depend on that income, and it's a poverty-stricken income. For us in the West to say, “Well, it would better if you didn't do that,” is not going to work. It is helping those communities to work more environmentally friendly but also to earn more money to eventually get out of mining. It is a slower process. It's not that we have all the answers. It's a process of empowerment.   Sharon: How about the recycled silver you use? Do you only use recycled silver? How did Fair Mined lead you into only working with recycled silver?   Ute: Fair Trade and Fair Mines initially were only gold mines. When you mine gold, in the ore there is some silver, but it's a much smaller percentage. So, there was availability of fair-trade gold, but very, very little of fair-trade silver. Of course, it's much cheaper to work with silver, so there would be a much higher demand. I would occasionally get a few grams of silver. I think now the availability of fair-mined silver is a little bit better. In fact, I've been told that it's quite good now, so I need to look into that again. It is a continuous journey, but at the time and until recently, there was not just enough availability of fair-trade silver. Otherwise, I would prefer to work in fair-trade silver.    Recycled silver—now we call it recycled because we're all so green; we used to call it scrapping. So, we've always done that.  We've never thrown away precious metals. For me, it is not necessarily an ethical proposition to work in recycled. It is a little bit better than nothing, but I wouldn't say I'm working ethical because I'm using recycled materials. I think that's almost the bare minimum we should be using.    But then we come back to your earlier questions about art jewelry, artist jewelry, ethical jewelry. I don't like the term ethical at all, ethical jewelry. It seems to be a standard term now. Sustainable jewelry, it definitely isn't sustainable. We're using finite resources. Responsible is probably a better term. I quite like mindful, but then mindful is so occupied with other things, so you can't use that term. So, I use ethical jewelry as a term because I think we all know what we mean by that, but I don't particularly like the term.   Sharon: Do your clients care? When you're having a showing or people call about your jewelry and you mention it, does it make a difference to them how you're working, whatever you want to call it? Do they care?   Ute: Not as much as I would have thought. Not as much as I do. It is not what people call a unique selling point; it's not. If you do make small wedding bands, I think young couples, especially younger people, are much more engaged in that sustainable question. For them it's much more important. People find their way first and foremost because there is something that speaks to you about the forms I make. It's only afterwards, when they look closer and they see the materials I use. I think it is a certain appreciation of individually made, sculpted pieces that are unique even when I make a series, because they're all hand sculpted. I will never be able to make the same piece again, so even with a series, pieces are unique.    If that somebody goes to the trouble and cares to choose the best material possible, I think that is appreciated, but nobody comes to me to buy a ring because it's made in fair trade. I would love to stop talking about this subject because I would love it to be normal, nothing special anymore, but after being met with so much hostility all those years ago in 2011, if you look at any website of jewelers now—especially high street—they all proclaim to have responsible sourcing, conflict-free diamonds. As a consumer, if you look, you think, “Oh, thank god all of it has been sorted.” I think our biggest problem now—because there are more and more responsible and ethical options available—is greenwash.   Sharon: Greenwash, did you say?   Ute: Yeah, greenwash. Greenwash means painting the status quo green, changing nothing, just making it sound green. Unless you have fully traceable, unless you know 100% where your materials come from, you can't make those claims. For me, using recycled is not necessarily ethical because there are huge issues with recycled. I'm always asked about that. I put a whole section on my website with several articles: “Is recycled or fair mined better?” because a lot of jewelers want to do the best. Rather than answering that question each time, I put quite a few articles on my website.    Sharon: May I ask you this about your jewelry, about something you said before? It's always seemed to me that if you're doing a show, you're putting your work out there for people to judge. “Yes, I want a ring like that,” or “No, it doesn't appeal to me,” and they move onto the next thing. It must take thick skin.   Ute: Interesting question. You would think so. Before I outed myself, I made jewelry for myself for nearly 20 years. I made what I wanted to wear, what I enjoyed. For me, it was totally unimportant if anybody else liked it.    Sharon: Are the pieces you make for the shows pieces you like or pieces you want to make?   Ute: When I started out only making jewelry for myself, I didn't show it to anybody. I made it for myself. It was out of interest and the creative joy of it. I wore the pieces, and it didn't matter whether somebody liked it. Then I accidentally showed my work for the first time, and I thought, “Who else is going to like this? I love it and some of my friends do, but maybe they're just being nice.” I did win a prize and things happened. It's quite amazing, to my greatest surprise, that several of my pieces are now in several museums including the V&A. I would have never, ever thought so. I think as any creative, to be authentic, you can't try to please everybody. You don't want to please everybody. It's wonderful that there are several people out there in the world who think that what I do speaks to them, but I'm quite happy for many people to just walk past.   Sharon: It doesn't matter.   Ute: Yes, it doesn't matter. There are some lovely older ladies who come. They giggle and say, “Oh, you couldn't do the gardening with that one.” I love that comment. It's still engaging, and they're interested in the shapes. It's so obvious it's not for them, but they still engage in a way. Jewelry, for me, is a way of making connections. You can't connect with absolutely everybody, but when it makes those connections, it's beautiful.  So no, I don't have thick skin, because I guess enough sparkling eyes gives me joy as well. I see artwork that others are enthused about, and it doesn't speak to me. Maybe a few years later it does. So no, I'm not trying to please anybody. It's a joy that there are many people I can share the work with.    Sharon: Your work is unusual, but if your work is not for gardening, as these women say, who is it for? Is it for younger people? Is it for people who appreciate the art and when they go garden, they'll put it aside? Who is it for?   Ute: Every piece I make is a piece I want to wear. Maybe in a way it's firstly for me, so I can keep making them. I sell my work to support my habit. Mostly the people who are drawn to my work are mature, mostly women, but also men. Mature people who are confident that come in all shapes, sizes, ages, everything, but who feel quite confident wearing a piece like the ring I'm wearing or the beautiful ring you're wearing.    Jewelry can also be very empowering. You put on a piece, and here I am talking nonstop, but I can be quite shy. Being in a gathering of people, especially for me to go up to somebody, yeah, I dread being in groups of people. When you wear a piece, it allows other people to approach you. It gives that invitation to speak to you. It doesn't say, “Hey, look what a cool piece I'm wearing.” It says, “Yes, I'm open to have a conversation.” It's amazing how many doors wearing my jewelry has opened. Then you start a conversation, and it naturally flows. Coming back to the question, it is for confident people, but it's also for non-confident people like myself. It's both.   Sharon: I can see how it would be for confident people. I invite everybody to take a look at our website. We'll have picture. It's very unusual jewelry. I really appreciate you being here today. Thank you so much.   Ute: Thank you. That time passed very quickly, Sharon. Thank you.   Thank you again for listening. Please leave us a rating and review so we can help others start their own jewelry journey.

What you'll learn in this episode: Why an empty mind is the key to creative exploration The difference between an artist-jeweler and a jeweler or artist alone What fair-trade gold is, and how Ute became a pioneer in the ethical jewelry movement Why greenwashing is the newest trend threatening the ethical jewelry market How jewelry creates connections, even when someone wouldn't wear a piece themselves About Ute Decker Ute Decker, born 1969, Germany, lives and works in London, UK. The jewels of Ute Decker are described as “a powerful statement” that “sets a shining ethical example” (Financial Times). The Economist 1843 compares her “avant-garde sculptural pieces” to “swirling sculptures” while Christie's simply calls them “wearable works of art”. Ute's pieces are exhibited internationally and have won prestigious awards including Gold Awards from The Goldsmiths' Craft and Design Council, UK. Public collections include the Victoria & Albert Museum, UK; the Crafts Council, UK; the Goldsmiths' Company, UK; the Spencer Museum, USA; Musée Barbier-Mueller, Switzerland; and the Swiss National Museum. As a political economist-turned-journalist-turned-artist jeweler, Ute Decker is a pioneer of the international ethical jewelery movement. She works predominately in recycled silver and was one of the first worldwide to work in Fairtrade Gold. Additional Resources: Website  Instagram Ute's Facebook Ute's Jewelry Facebook Photos Available on TheJewelryJourney.com  Transcript: When it comes to ethical jewelry, artist-jeweler Ute Decker is the real deal. She was one of the first people to use fair-trade gold when it became available in the U.K., and she has spent her career advocating for the use of truly ethically sourced materials in the jewelry industry. Above all, she's proven that ethical can be beautiful: her sculptural works have won several awards and are in the collection of museums worldwide. She joined the Jewelry Journey Podcast to talk about what fair trade means; how she approaches the creative process; and what makes an artist-jeweler. Read the episode transcript here.   Sharon: Hello, everyone. Welcome to the Jewelry Journey Podcast. This is a two-part Jewelry Journey Podcast. Please make sure you subscribe so you can hear part two as soon as it comes out later this week.    Today my guest is Ute Decker, talking with us from London. Ute is an artist-jeweler who's known for an innovative method of sculpting, bending and twisting metal into three-dimensional, wearable sculptures. She works in fair-trade gold and recycled silver and is considered a pioneer in the international ethical jewelry movement. We'll hear more about her jewelry journey today. Ute, welcome to the program.   Ute: Sharon, thank you very much for having me. It's a pleasure to be here.   Sharon: So glad to have you. Tell us about your jewelry journey. How did you end up doing what you're doing?   Ute: Yes, it was rather unplanned. I'm the daughter of winemakers, several generations of winemakers. As a child, I thought that's what I wanted to be, making wine. So, I grew up in beautiful nature. As I grew up, I was more and more interested in politics, history, philosophy, and I ended up in political economics, because already as a teenager, I wanted to change the world. I thought it was best to have some understanding of how things work. During university, I did a six-month internship at the United Nations. It was also a real eye opener on how slow progress is made and lobbying, so I was quite disheartened after that internship. Then I worked as a journalist for a while, doing news, current affairs. I probably failed in that because I'm not a good storyteller. Words are not my medium.    I was a little bit lost for a while as to what I really wanted to do. When I grew up, in primary and secondary school, art classes were all about figurative drawing and making. I admired it in other people when they can do it, but that's not my interest, and certainly I can't draw a stickperson to save my life. So, I left school thinking I'm actually not very creative or artistic because I failed in what was required. It was probably not until my mid-30s or maybe late 20s when friends said when I made something, “Oh, that's interesting.” For years I was a closet creator. I went to evening classes and all kinds of workshops, whether it's large-scale sculptures, textiles—I love ceramics—several photography workshops. It really was doing workshops that I kept going back.    Nearly for 20 years before offering myself as a jeweler, friends said, “You should do something with your jewelry,” and I said, “Absolutely not.” I loved it so much. There's no way I would like to make it something professional, to have that kind of pressure. I enjoyed it far too much, but then I was invited to take part in a group show. I thought, “It's fine; I'll add a few pieces and just see.” That was quite amazing. That was in 2009. I won a prize and tons of press, and a couple of major collectors bought my pieces. I thought, “Wow, that's nice! I'll maybe do that one more time.” Soon afterwards, I got a proper, full-time studio. The rest is history, really.   Sharon: I don't know if it's still in progress or you just finished up a solo exhibition at the Elisabetta Cipriani Gallery. Tell us about that. Did you feel it was fulfilling, the adulation?   Ute: Elisabetta Cipriani Gallery is absolutely wonderful. We met, I think, in 2013 at Design Basel where they gave me a spotlight showcase, and we've been working together ever since. As you know—you've done an interview with Elisabetta—Elisabetta primarily represents jewelry by artists. Probably the best known is Rebecca Horn. She does collaborations with fine artists, and I was the first one that was more of an art jeweler than a fine artist making jewelry. Now she works with a few more art jewelers. Elisabetta is Italian and it's always “bella.” What a joy to work with somebody who has a really keen eye, interesting observations, does some wonderful projects, is incredibly supportive and is just a joy to be with.    For that exhibition, it's been in discussion for years. I maybe procrastinated a bit because it feels like—it's the same with how I never wanted to show my jewelry. It feels like you're offering it for others to judge. For me, it's a private thing in a way; it's my way of expressing. A solo show is similar. Here is me at this time. I didn't quite like the idea, but of course it's crazy to postpone an offer of a solo show. Then I finally said to Elisabetta, “Look, I will never be ready. Let's just set a date.” So, we did, and then Covid happened, so it was delayed even more. But I created a new body of work for that show called “Creating Waves.” If you have a chance to see it on Elisabetta's or my website—   Sharon: Which we'll list afterwards with show images.   Ute: Yeah. I've also worked with some system of loops because, for me, jewelry is about making connections. It's making personal connections, but it's making broader connections. Coming from that political/economic background in journalism, it's connections of materiality; it's connections where the material comes from. For me, the interlinking loops—and quite a few of those loops are open, so you can change which connections you would like to make and configure the piece. That's another strand that I developed for the solo show, yeah.   Sharon: I can see. We'll hopefully have a picture of it posted with the podcast. You're wearing one of your rings. Were the loops something you saw in front of you when the metal is flat? Was that something that came to you when you were playing around with it? How did that happen?   Ute: For me, making is very much an exploration. I might have certain ideas when I go into the studio and sit, but I'm very fascinated by Japanese Zen philosophy. That philosophy talks a lot about emptiness as well as empty mind. We in the West see emptiness as a void of something we absolutely, quickly need to fill, as something missing, while in that philosophy, emptiness is the vast openness for potential. For me, I don't want to come to the studio with a fixed idea of what I'd like to do, because then I've already determined it as if I know. I don't need to explore anymore if I feel I know. So, I always kind of know what I'd like to do, but then I usually do something completely different. It's that almost empty mind of exploring metal, shapes.    Quite often it's the sculptural form that I explore. As I said, I can't draw, so I make maquettes in garden wire or in brass and explore the shape for its sculptural form. It's quite often only later that I decide for which part of the body that sculpture form would work best. Then it's weeks of tweaking the brass maquettes. I'm quite often seen wearing the maquettes, because when you create such large sculptural forms, they really need to balance and sit well on the body. It's important that I work that out while wearing them, how they engage with the body. It's only then, when I'm happy, I make the final pieces. It's only then, once the pieces are in front of me, that there's another thought process and those pieces remind me of something, remind me of the loops, how they're interconnected, how we can change our connections, other waves.    I think if you gave me a commission to make a piece about waves, I would fail. It is rather I make a piece, and then it reminds me of waves when I see them. It's kind of arresting time of that kind of movement. I'm very happy with some of the pieces that have become quite special to me. Maybe if we can add a particular armpiece for your listeners to see, it is very much a large wave, but when you put the several maquettes next to each other and you don't have any idea of scale, some people who saw the maquettes said, “Oh, that looks like a Richard Serra that you could walk into.” I think that's also why I give my pieces relatively open titles, because I don't want to pre-determine people's associations, just like I don't want to predetermine what reaction I might have to it. We all come with our own backgrounds, with our own thoughts to a piece, and it's the same. Any great artwork will elicit different reactions depending on what state of life we're in and recent experiences. I like to give pieces very open titles for the viewer and wearer to make it their own.   Sharon: So, you say you're an artist-jeweler. What is the difference between that and an artist alone or a jeweler alone? What is an artist-jeweler to you?   Ute: That is the eternal question, isn't it? That is the eternal question, and I still don't know how to answer that. When I'm asked what I do, if we're face-to-face it's very easy, because I usually wear one of my pieces. I hold it up and say, “This is what I do,” and then you decide what that means to you. The other times when you say you're a jeweler, very few people know about the art jewelry world, really surprisingly. So, most people think you're designing little hearts for the high street shops. I think that's why an artist-jeweler will then elicit another question where you can go deeper into it, but it's all just words. This is what I'm doing.    Sharon: No, it is. It's a very difficult question to answer. I usually ask people what they consider a collector, which also is a very difficult question. When you find the answer, give me a call.    You tried textiles. You tried photography. You tried sculpture. What is it about the kind of jewelry you do; why did it attract you? Why did it stand out?   Ute: I guess jewelry is not called the most intimate of art forms for nothing. I love that you can disappear in your studio and quietly work. I create everything myself with my two hands. I sculpt everything myself. With large-scale sculpture, there's much more immediacy with jewelry because I can bend the shapes with my own hands. In fact, my jewelry studio has very few tools, has no nasty chemicals. It's really my hands, a few pliers, a few mallets, mandrels. I like being able to have a spark and immediately translate that into a shape. That's also why I love ceramics. I think in my next life I'll try ceramics as well, explore that.   After setting up as a jeweler, I was commissioned to make some large-scale sculptures, and I thought, “That's amazing. That's what you wanted to do, of course.” But they're so large I had to work with a fabricator. It was a fantastic fabricator who had done it for very well-known artists, the YBAs, the Young British Artists, and did a fantastic job. But for me, it felt unfinished. I handed over the maquette. The fabricator did a wonderful job making a large piece, but usually when I finish a piece of jewelry, I then go and tweak it. It sits there for weeks, and I continue working on it. Here, I was handed over something finished. I don't want something finished. You can't bend it any more with your hands. So, it was surprisingly unsatisfying to make very large sculptures, but I'll do table-size sculptures where I can still be fully hands on. That is something I enjoy doing.   Sharon: Do you do that now, make table-size sculptures similar to jewelry that you bend?   Ute: Yeah, quite a few pieces. In fact, that is one of my favorite reactions when I show my work. People say, “Oh, this is a sculpture. I'm sure you can't wear it,” and then I put it on my hand and the person's hand, and I say, “But surely you can't wear that piece,” and it's wearable. Quite a few pieces look like they only could possibly be sculptures and there's no way to wear them. That's what I really enjoy. Many pieces have been purchased purely for the sole purpose of displaying them rather than wearing them. It's the liminal space between sculpture and wearable sculpture, and again, it's your choice.

Tristan Scott wants to figure out where beef and bitcoin overlap - and the areas where they overlap turns out to be rather surprising and plentiful. Is the moment when Nixon takes the U.S. off the Gold Standard where both our health and currency woes begin? Tristan and Kate explore the answer to that question by looking at two parallel journeys: a weakening U.S. dollar and the rise of Bitcoin and the precipitous decline in health and the centralization of our food system and the rebirth of the local and regenerative food movement. Are bitcoin and regenerative beef disrupting the current paradigm? Could be. Kate's father had a saying: “You can see as far up a bull's ass as I can” and this holds true for looking at the future trends for bitcoin and beef, but at the end of this marathon episode, it's clear that the time for decentralization is nigh.

The 5 Keys to Gold Standard Agency Project Management with Gray MacKenzie

The temptation to get back into client work can be overwhelming for a CEO scaling their team - especially when it feels like your reputation is on the line. This means that too many CEOs are stuck overseeing project management that really should be delegated to other team members, leaving them with less time to actually run their business. In this episode of Hands-Off CEO, Mandi's guest Gray Mackenzie, co-founder of ZenPilot, shares what CEOs need to do to get out of day-to-day project management once and for all. Key Ideas: Entrepreneurs are always the people who get left for better, easier or more lucrative opportunities - they never get to leave and that can be disheartening. Don't get discouraged when key people leave your agency: you were part of their journey, and they were part of yours. For as long as they are a great fit and they stay with you, get as much value from them as you can. [9:20] If you want to attract the best clients, and make the highest profits, you need to minimize risk and increase quality as much as possible as you scale. Gray talks about the 5 key elements you need to understand and be using them in all areas of your business. A trap to avoid is too much customization - custom doesn't scale. [16:38] If you take anything away from this episode, it's this: To continuously make your service better and more profitable, you need to look at it like a scientist would. Solve the same problem again and again by constantly imagining: what would make this better? How do we turn our standard service into all-star service, and then how do we level up from that?. [23:31] When you know it's time to make a change, it's time to make a change, and the smartest move is often to hire experts to implement a new system, like ClickUp. It's often not worth eating up your team's bandwidth when there are experts who can get you exactly where you need to be. That's the foundation Graw has built his business on: breaking through “it's how we've always done it” and into systems that are truly gold standard. [30:15] When you're starting a new initiative, you need to think about the costs of implementation - and also the cost of NOT implementing. You need to know your vision, and how different projects are going to impact it. When you take on projects internally that you aren't equipped for, the opportunity costs can be extraordinary. Take the long view when considering your investments in your company.
