I have been a very busy lady lately. I have been to Chicago and Las Vegas buying many new pendants and silver. Last week I took a number of classes from a silvermith and several jewelry artisans. I learned how to solder and fuse silver. It will open up a whole new area of jewelry making for me.
From the artisans I learned several metal forming techniques and metal connections that do not use solder or fusing. This sort of connecting is called cold connections. I can't wait to try them and create many new items for you. I have included a few pictures of the items I created while in class. Take a look. Just remember these were my first ones.
Well that is all for now it is time to get busy with my new torch.
