Yesterday I took my first silversmithing class and I'm hooked! This oak leaf is my very first piece, and I'm not sure yet what it will become. I'll be taking a connections class next, so perhaps will turn it into a pendant after I learn more. I am very interested in translating nature into jewelry.
A couple of years ago I took a metalsmithing class and made this Ruthenian Crown out of copper and tin. It was torch soldered, so I already had some experience with the torch.
I'll be posting more as I learn!
