Metal Smithing .....
One of my current passions is working with metal.....silver, copper, and bronze. My collection includes fold-formed leaves and flowers, hand forged bracelets and neck wires. I have also done a number of custom pieces including antique coin settings and family jewelry.
I'm currently expanding my horizons to include bronze castings, etching, and enameling. In reality.... I'm open to trying almost any technique for making jewelry !!!
My "better half" is now geared up for cutting and polishing gemstones (many of which we collect ourselves). And of course......he is always there when I need an extra pair of hands (Suzie, my 4-legged assistant is not so helpful when I need hands!!!).
