I enrolled in metalsmithing/silversmithing class thinking I was going to make bracelets but somehow I fell into rings, I’m having so much fun!

3/28 I finally found the courage to cut my silver in class yesterday!

3/14 I started taking a silversmithing class, in the first 30 minutes I learned I had been doing it all wrong! Very exciting when you find out where you went wrong!

Still haven’t plucked up the courage to cut my silver sheet yet but soon!

Meanwhile practicing with brass & copper.

My silversmithing

classes don’t start

I’ve been eager to tinker with the tools I got for Christmas. I have no idea what I’m doing so I’m experimenting with copper as it’s not as expensive, this is the only piece I’ve had success with. Which flux for which solder? torch or iron ?

Which solder? Easy, medium, hard? Fumbling my way around but still so excited! Watch this space!
