So I have been working on a couple new projects, one involving designing and making jewelry based on my "Tasseled" collection. In college, I actually took a "jewelry making" class, in which I thought we would be making jewelry with beads and jewels...you know...pretty things. Boy was I surprised! Next thing I knew I was forging solid silver on an anvil and soldering jump rings. Though it was not what I expected, it gave me a great respect for those who actually do those things. For me, however, I wanted to try my hand at making something I could actually do and would actually wear (and have been!), and here are a few of the results, with more to come!
