OOOOHHHHHHH! That sounds absolutely wonderful!!! My first love was metal smithing. I took a beginners class over 20 years ago and LOVED it but I did not have the time or the means to pursue it which is why I jumped whole heartedly into metal clay after discovering it! You are now, where I hope to be in the future! I'm starting back with some metalsmithing classes this summer but no where near a fab as the class you took. Yeah! for you :D
Hi Jennifer! I'm doing great! I had a great rings class with Lorrene Davis at Ann Davis' beautiful studio this past weekend and am still riding the high. As for Crafthaus, I've finally made myself get this all together and am soooooo glad I did. I'm looking forward to getting to know some fabulously talented artists like yourself a little better. What a great idea this is! How is everything with you?
