I've added another Squidoo Lens, this one is:
How to Get Started in Jewelry Making and Metalsmithing
It lists schools, books, answers some basic "What is..." questions,
and includes my lists of what tools beginners need when starting
metals, when starting PMC, and more.
I can always add to it, and am open to suggestions. It is intended to
be an overview and for beginners though. I am not claiming that it is
I also have a couple other relevant resources, if you haven't seen
and one about Squidoo itself...
