Jewelry making is a hobby for me, though I sell a few things every month. I bead necklaces and bracelets, and assemble earrings, and am now making beads, clasps, etc. with PMC. I also fabricate a few things, but I don't have the skill or the tools for doing anything that isn't dead simple. I was on the Orchid list-serve for a couple of years, but dropped out this summer. I look forward to receiving posts again, as I learn a lot and very much enjoy the kindness and helpfulness everybody exhibits.
