Hello, I am a beginning metal clay artist. I recently retired and am
hoping to have a little more time to explore and work with this
medium. So far, I have taken 3 classes and done a little work on my
own. My previous experience in jewelry work is 2 years of
silversmithing classes taken 12 or 13 years ago. I am doing lots of
reading, looking at websites, checking out lots of books and
catalogs. I have a great interest in enameling, creating my own
texture sheets, custom stamps and developing my own style. I greatly
appreciate learning from others with experience, varied ba ckgrounds
and points of view. I’m looking for this to be a fun, creative
experience and learning adventure for many years to come. Jan
