Hello, Edward! It’s been so long and I’ve completely forgotten that
I emailed Ganoksin this question. I asked this question on October
26th of 2015 and not being aware of how the site worked, I didn’t see
any responses when I searched up the question the next day. It’s just
today (Feb. 14) that I decided to search my name in the archives and
rediscovered the question I asked. When I scrolled down, I saw the
words RE: [ORCHID] ENAMELING & METAL TYPES and “RE” meant
response/repky which meant people had replied to my question the very
next day after I asked it.
Unfortunately, after I asked my question and saw no responses
(although today I found out 3 people responded the very next day), I
pursued the answers to my questions somewhere else and now I’m an
enamelling expert (meaning I have a lot of KNOWLEDGE of enamelling,
but I’ve never touched enamel in my life). When I saw your response
though, I felt kind of bad about not knowing how the website worked
at the time and not being aware that someone responded to my
questions. I decided that although it’s now February 14 (4 months
later) and I discovered the answers to all my questions somewhere
along the way, I’d still say thank you for your response.
To answer your questions :
I live in Chicago
I’m in 8th grade and I’m graduating in 4 months
My parents are totally fine with me working with such tools. They
don’t know anything about what I’ll be working with, they just know
that I’m launching a jewelry brand and trust that I know what I’m
doing. I’m a very quick-learner and I’m making sure that I do ample
research on jewelry studio safety.
Thanks so much for caring and your response!
P. S although I already know the answers to all of the questions I
had 4 months ago, I just posted another question today called “Making
A Certain Hinge”. Maybe you can search that up in the archives to
help me with that question.
