Hi blog followers!  As you may or may not know I’ve been teaching locally at my home studio – 3rd Ward http://www.3rdward.com  Earlier this year I collaborated with a national company called Sympoz to make an online jewelry class.  I’m happy to announce that the class is finally finished, and ready for you all to sign up!  Check it out at http://www.sympoz.com ,  and in a few months it will move to it’s final home at http://www.craftsy.com  I’ll teach you wire wrapping, pearl knotting, chain making and even photo-etching!  Happy Making 🙂

Brian’s Super Chunk Ring

I just finally made a ring that my boyfriend will actually wear!  This faceted, rough-hewn, cast ring is a nice balance between masculine and flashy.  It also matches one of his other rings in color, so he feels comfortable wearing it daily.  This ring is in silicon bronze, which give it a warmer feel than brass or manganese (yellow) bronze.  Silicon bronze also works better for pour casting operations, which is the way we cast at 3rd Ward, with the help of a vacuum.  I’m going to mould this ring, so I could make one for you and yours, if you like!  Check out a few more shots:
