:D I'm new here....obviously. I LOVE metal smithing. I'll post some of my work when I get pictures of it. I just finished out my semester at Columbia College Chicago, so I am a little behind. I'm studying photography there, but I just took a semester in jewelry for non-majors. I was so excited that the soldering torch was the first thing we got to learn about! :D I was so upset when the semester ended. I'm going to start building a collection of tools soon though, so I can keep on working. I just learned that Fire Mountain Gems, a bead store I go to online, is starting to carry metalsmithing tools for jewelry as well. My wishlist is going to explode!
Anyways. I'm so glad this group was made. I am in love with metalsmithing and am glad to have people to geek over it with. :)
BTW: Here's a link to my beadwork that I've done *and had the time to take pictures of*. They are dread sleeves, and once I get the chance, I'm going to put them up on Etsy.
