I have been making jewelry for a long time. So long, that it’s just what I do! I am sure you know the feeling.

I have always wanted to learn metal smithing. Finally I had enough sales with my beaded jewelry that purchasing the equipment was possible. I am learning to make Gemstone and silver rings.

I have taken soldering classes years ago but I really wanted to dive into it now that I have a studio space.

It’s a whole new exciting world for me, especially since I got over the fear of the torch! How silly was I! I just needed to acquire the proper safety equipment and practice really.
