Pam wanted to come in and finish her large mask piece she carved and cast into silver in Lars casting class. She created 3 independent pieces that needed to be soldered together with a chain through the loop part. Pam loves mask's and I love her design! We also water casted her scrap silver then assembled and soldered the pieces into this beautiful pendant! It was a productive private class!
A cool custom mens wedding band was made today by folding the organic shaped silver sheet over a textured piece of copper. My friend Amy also came in and made herself a second ring with a beautiful Botswana agate stone!
My Certification Students had a treat last week and this week with Sherri Haab coming in to teach us! We learned electroforming, electrical etching, photo/ITS transfers and resin clay. I was a little caught up with creating my own projects in-between packing and moving my house, so I only got a few photo's of my own jewelry. They turned out great!
Melissa Muir has a great studio! My Certification Students and I were excited to go play with her multiple hydraulic press's for a few days. We created domed shapes, anti-castic and synclastic cuffs and learned lots of new skills! Thanks for having us Melissa! You can take some of her classes in my studio, check the class schedule here for what's coming up soon!
Silversmith and teacher of refined jewelry arts, basically that means I am obsessed with metal and passionate about teaching!
