I’m taking a silversmithing class this year at Creative Arts Camp and now have a new appreciation for all the work that goes into handmade jewelry pieces! Ours is a small class and we are all working on individual projects of our choice. Our teacher (who designed the Cross and Crown Pendant mentioned the other day) was rigorously trained in Austria, and has designed very high end jewelry. It has been great to get to take this class with her.
I’ll show our finished work soon. Meanwhile we are sawing, filing, sanding, soldering, buffing, etc, slowly… very slowly. This is not fast paced work.
