As a long time jewelry maker, I have worked in several mediums, but I have always wanted to try silversmithing.
Due to my rural location, that opportunity has never presented itself…until this year!
I was very excited to get my first class in and this is the piece I made.
I am starting another piece on my own.
I find that learning the ins and outs of the torch is the biggest challenge. Always something new to learn!
