On January 26, I will be attending my very first class on
jewelry fabrication and metals. I am a wirewrapper and beader,
so have no experience with metals whatsoever. I must make a box
and a bowl! That is the first step and then I will be able to
take baby steps in learning jewelry making. Does anyone out
there remember (either with pain or pleasure, and I’m sure much
humor) their first days learning about metals and equipment etc?
Are there any tidbits of wisdom or advice you can share with me
before or while I am making my bowl and my box? Any pitfalls?
What is most important for me to grasp immediately? Any help will
be recieved more than humbly and greatly appreciated.
