Metalsmithing class made & met tonight.Three of us from the previous class & 3tonight,5 in total from previous advanced classes. We didn't have any special assignment for the evening, we ordered supplies from Rio Grande & went through some new jewelry books someone had brought in to share.I ordered 2 different widths of flat wire for rings. I still have a small sheet of silver so I'll wait until I have a specific need to order more.I'm not going into class w/ any hard & fast ideas about what I want to make yet, I'll focus on techniques again & see what develops. 'Teach' brought up a few things we'll be looking into & enameling was one of them, yay! He also said he could help me make bowls from the rounds I got in my collage package of scrap metals last class. All in all a good first class.
On another note I got a sneak preview of my Bead Soup items.Funny thing, we sent almost identical colour schemes! The main difference being copper vs. silver. The irony of that is, of course, I had chosen copper first, but switched to silver when I went w/ a second swap grouping(see Bead Soup Confessions for the tawdry story!). I guess the sneak peek means it is on the way & should be here any time now. If you haven't heard, there is a flickr group for the all the Bead Soup participants to show their works.
