I am now into week 4 of a jewelry making course. I always wanted to take a course and not just a 3 hour workshop, which I have taken a couple of those. Our teacher, Bon, is well known and I had heard of him before too. I like the fact that we have projects that we must first do in the course that is designed to build on our skills and he closely oversees our work and answers our question. Also, what a great bunch of people in class. So here is some pics of the projects that I made so far:
|Made with 16 gauge wire. Twisting, lots of annealing and cleaning after every pickling|
fusing, hammering and more twisting and using the drawplate and forming.
|Project #2 , wire twisted and straight was wrapped around and 8 gauge ss wire core|
|Another project with twisted wire wrapped around a core wire.. Annealing in picture 3.|
