This is a project that my Beginning Metals students are doing. The cuff bracelet — made with copper, a brass plaque pierced with flowers and silver rivets — has a retro vibe. The mix of metals is a nice contrast and can be worn with any other jewelry. It’s casual and fun. A good project for a cold winter afternoon!

More advanced students are working on Tube Setting skills. I haven’t done this myself in quite some time, so I thought I’d better experiment and actually do it along with my instruction. It’s good to practice the things you know. And teaching is an excellent refresher.

I love the students I am so lucky to work with. They inspire me every time we get together!

Teaching.
