"When I started meddling with jewelry, I thought: paste solder, how cool is that... After a year or so messing I gave it a try to wire and sheet to never look back. One field I found paste useful is soldering chainlinks. I have no idea why , but…"
"It seems to me that you managed to come up with a new solution ( well, actually two). That notching and welding seems like a nice one. Thank you for posting the question! On my part I learned a lot. I only tried something similar once, that time I…"

I would have loved to make those pieces, but they are the products of the apparently inexhaustible fantasy of Thomasin Durgin. I am sorry if that was not sufficiently apparent.
Your pieces are very strong, I like them very much!
"I am growing old and loosing my sense of humor. It is probably because the ground under my feet is getting hotter every day - (well, maybe this does not go through in English). Good that there are young people ( even if their number of years are…"
"Thanks for the info! I was not aware of this, just as I have had no idea about the amount of funding for alternative energy. I was under the impression that the USA is lagging in the development of these resources and technology because some other…"
Welcome to crafthaus, the network for craft artists, and those who support them! I am very glad you joined us !
Please feel free to look around, meet old friends, make new ones, and start adding your thoughts to the groups, blogs and discussion forums that are already posted. Of course, if there is something else you'd much rather talk about, please add that to the site so that the rest of us can chime in. Crafthaus is a participatory sport ! The more you put into it, the more you will get out of it, for sure.
Please note that crafthaus is both a fully edited and a member-financed website, meaning that a small annual fee ($20/yr or $35/2yrs) is involved in being a member here. You will find all the necessary information on how to go about this in the FAQs section of the site. Your membership fee is due on or before July 15, 2010 and is payable through paypal (preferred,) US check or credit card.
ALL images sent to the website editor will be vetted to assure some measure of overall quality control. Unlike other image sharing websites, crafthaus is not a "free-for-all". Members present their work in front of an educated and critical audience (their peers,) so the images have to be GREAT. Our goal is to show our members' work in the best possible light, and from the many images received daily, we try to post as many as possible. Crafthaus heartily encourages comments from the membership, however with regard to photos posted or not, we have a strict "NO WHINING" policy in effect ! If your photos do not get posted they are just not as good as they need to be. Yes, it's really that simple. Just reshoot and resubmit ! No harm done.
Finally, if there are ever any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to email me via email@example.com anytime. I will do my best to be of help. I really hope you will enjoy being with this network, and will find the exchanges interesting and fun.
Share the secret: how to enjoy Christmas shopping
Hi Fellow craft business
Yes, Christmas is nearly here, but we know that many people haven't done their Christmas shopping yet, and, perhaps more importantly, many won't be looking…"
I witnessed a bunch of troublesome ‘discussions’ this past week. Not directed at me personally, but troublesome nevertheless. They also weren’t real discussions either, as in: a respectful exchange of opinions where one side hears the other out. It was more of a mud-slinging contest on another popular…See More
Over the next few weeks we are after some idea of videos that you would like us to film. Perhaps it is a particular tool that you want Andrew to demonstrate. Have you asked Santa for an item of equipment that you would like…"
