I've been involved in making mostly wire jewerly since back in the late 1980's when I first encountered Jim Fowler at a gem show. At the time there was no instruction and it was a rough road with mainly trial and error...and lots of error. For the past 8 or 9 years I've also been taking one evening a week silver fabrication lessons, which is great fun with others who also have a love of creating and designing. I've recently become an "empty nester" and am trying to organize my home to consolidate all of my jewerly making supplies and equipment in one room. I'm so happy to join this wonderful forum and hopefully learn and help others if I can.
