Oh my! I did a lot of soldering today, a lot of sawing (breaking more than a few saw blades, they are so TINY), whacking things with a hammer, sanding, using a rolling mill, etc etc etc. I made a ring and a scarf pin so far -- the ring was sort of an accident and I didn't position the stone in the direction I really wanted, but it's my first attempt. Gotta learn somehow. Tomorrow I hope to set another stone and this time do a pendant.
There are so many ideas I have, but I have to be careful and not fill the house up with tools and try to just focus on a couple of things. Working with all that metal made me feel much more creative with my heavy-gauge wire, so I made several rings tonight (non-bezel, but very cool) and a necklace that I love. I'll have photos soon!
