{baby steps} silversmithing

I am very excited to share with you my latest hobby and craft: silversmithing. I discovered a jeweler that teaches silver enthusiasts how to transform this metal and create beautiful jewelry with it. The studio is lovely and I am smitten with all the tools and instruments and processes.

I started on Monday and, after 4 days, I have one and a half ring to be proud about. I learned to measure and form rings, how to enclose a regular-shaped stone and an irregular shaped one. And I am looking forward to the next week, when will learn how to create intarsia effect with wood and silver, and then, to the little silversmithing corner I will create at home.

Have a great week ahead, everybody!
