Metalsmithing class…oh the possibilites

I took a great metal smithing class this week.  I really love working with wire and tools.  I made this bracelet and a pair of earrings!!!

I have been taking classes to see what direction the jewlery making will take me, metalsmithing has been one of my goals for this year. I love working with metal. It is the second time taking the course with the same instructor. I took this course when I first started making jewelry, all I can say that I have come along way. I feel comfortable with the tools, I am not afraid of the torch and the possibilites for creating my own componetnts is exhilirating.

Getting a chunk a time to work on my craft, thanks to my family, is really fantastic.  I get to be just me working and learning a new skill and making some fabulous new jewelry!!!
