Susan I Thornton
Thornton Metals

I began my jewelry training attending workshops in 1991. I was
fortunate to be employed as a maker for an established designer in
1992. I continued until 1995, when I opened my own studio producing
my own designs in Nashville, Tennessee. From 2003 to 2006 I attended
the Appalachian Center for Craft and received a Bachelor of Fine Arts
in Metals and Jewelry with a secondary emphasis in Fibers. I have
continued to exhibit in juried fine craft fairs and galleries since
I opened my studio in 1995.

Hi, I am fairly new to Jewelry making. I am interested in getting
good quality bench tools but I want to spend wisely since I have
fairly limited resources. Right now I am researching forming tools
and especially want info on dapping blocks and disc cutters.
