In this blog, I'll attempt to stay focused on my ventures into jewelry design. Several years ago, I was making and selling jewelry (mostly leather & earthy beads) in a local shop...but eventually something else took my focus. Sometime during the last year, I discovered metal stamping and most recently I've discovered metal clays. Why did I not know metal clays existed? What a genius idea! Plus, more mediums for me to play with. Right? Right.
And with the new interest in jewelry design and all the possibilities comes the need for lots and lots of new tools. Stamps and blanks for the metal stamping...and letter sets of course. Now I've added a saw and have started cutting my own copper. And of course I had to have a kiln for that metal clay business.

I had hardly even started on the bronze clay when I discovered etching!
