I am SO annoyed. I had just finished cleaning and polishing these rings:
when I managed to completely lose the one on the right with the heart. I have turned the workshop upside-down and can't find it. It is getting to the point where I would actually be quicker making another! These rings are part of my collection…Continue

CRITIQUE GROUP GUIDELINES
A Critique Group can offer friendly feedback and helpful perspective to artists and makers on a regular basis. Scheduled meetings also help you stay motivated with external deadlines (for each Critique Group meeting) and a break from the isolation of the studio.
