The Joy of Metalsmithing

Today I completed my first class in Introduction to Metalsmithing atthe Boulder School of Metals.   I had a blast and learned so much from my very talented instructor, Karen Schulz.  It was amazing to learn how to work with new materials like copper, silver and semi precious stones.  It was a challenge learning use the basic tools of metalsmithing to saw, sand, mold and solder metals but the rewards were grand.  I was very proud of the pieces I made and the accomplishment of learning something new.  I can’t wait to do it all over again with my next course.
