Well not camp, exactly - even better! I’m going to spend 5 days
with Anne Hollerbach and Lee Marshall finally learning the basics of
hydraulic dye forming … and since I’ve had my press for a few
years now, it’s probably a good thing to learn how to use it more
effectively. I am nervous, afraid that as a "hobby jewelry artist"
my skills are not up to snuff (especially soldering, because I do a
LOT of riveting and very little soldering), relieved that I reread
the supplies list last week (that was “wax burs”, not “wax files”,
so the wax burs just arrived last night), and just plain excited! I
brushed up on reticulation, have been reading Susan Kingsley’s book
over and over and understand about 30% of it now, and if the costume
department of my son’s school will just stop giving me sewing to do,
I could get in the studio to do some soldering before I go. I just
had to share with my online community. Thanks for listening.
