Hello to all from a newcomer to Orchid and to silver fabrication as well. As a result of my vintage costume jewelry business, I became very interested in lampwork bead making and in slver fabrication of jewelry. This past summer I spent hours and hours happily at two excellent educational venues: Snow Farm in Williamsburg, Massachusetts, and Fletcher Farm in Ludlow, Vermont. At the former I had wonderful lampwork bead classes with acclaimed teachers, while at the latter, I pursued a number of silver courses, including PMC, but concentrating on benchwork sterling silver jewelry. At once, I found this to be totally addictive and very peaceful as well; spending time filing and hand polishing silver pieces was such a gentle pursuit, and of course the payoff was the wonderful result - a piece of creditable jewelry. I look forward to learning more from all of you. Thanks so much in advance. Kindest regards, Nancy R in VT
