I always say”Oh! I can do that " and I do it....I went to Web and graphic school with younger students and I worked my "BUTT" off and I show them "I CAN DO THAT" ....And guess what!!! I was third in my class .
This time, I want to go further in my jewellery making!!!!
What give me the push is that I apply to do a art show during Christmas last year and I was not accepted because they say I did "strung work!!!! ", I was showing hammer and twisted metal with a few beads here and there.....and I found out if the beads is not handmade or hammer it is STRUNG!!!!!
So, I will learn new thing with all kind of metal, stamping, a torch,hammering ETC.... and they will see what I can do ....
I receive small shipments of tools, stamps, metal pieces, bottle of sulfur and a mandrel for making bracelets.
I always designs on paper what I wanted to make BUT it is not for a beginner, YET. I have to start at the beginning even if I say I CAN DO THAT ….
I will show my progress and my mistakes while I am learning.
And I will be ready, to show few samples for that Art Show in December :O)
Some basic tools for now.
For the caliper, you don’t have to pay the high price...my husband got one for me in a hardware store for 1/2 the price on sale....also for the piece of wood call a V-Slot bench pin ,he cut me one for nothing.
From a beginner Point of View...do not buy on a wimp, look around on different site for their prices, shipping cost etc... I look for weeks to try to find the best places and still looking :O)
Now back to work ........
