A couple of years ago I took my first class in silversmithing. It was an introduction, just a few hours. For the first time I hand cut and drilled a piece of sterling silver.
Alas, right after that, life took an unexpected turn and I never finished the piece. It still needed to be filed and polished. Finally it's out again and I'm slowly working on it during free moments in my current silversmithing class.
I'm told that next week we're going to learn to dome metal and I loved the suggestion that I could make a few more little flowers, dome them and solder them onto this little branch. Hmmm... I'd love to play with a little bit of enamel too... so it looks like this work in progress might stay in progress for a little while longer.
