I'm taking a class at University of the Arts in Jewelry Design and Metalsmithing! I already make a lot of jewelry, but it mostly involves simple gluing, beading, and wiring techniques. I wanted to learn some proper metalsmithing skills too, and this class seems like it's going to be perfect. Here's a pendant I'm working on- it's going to be two layers of brass soldered together, with one of the layers oxidized. I'm still not very good at sawing metal so my lines are kind of wavery, but that's ok since I'm going for a really organic look anyway! (You can see a computer printout towards the top of the photo of my design for the pendant).
