Back in the Studio

I'm back in the studio pounding on metal, feels good.  I have a very handy small torch to solder with that fits on top of a small propane bottle.  As soon as I figure out how to post a photo that shows up on the page, I will do so. Metal clay is so forgiving & free form, as soon as I start to shape sterling wire, and texture it with a hammer, I'm reminded of the ease of metal clay.

Tomorrow starts the biggest wholesale gem & jewelry show of the fall, time to stock up on things for the holiday sale season.
