These are the first five thing I have made. I have always enjoyed making jewelry but wanted to take it to a new level. I love the handcrafted, artisan look and decided I wanting to try silver smithing, basically soldering my own pieces and making my own findings. It is going to take some practice but it is really fun. I am learning how to do it by watching youtube and by the great artisans on etsy who have been a great help with supplies, instructions and a wealth of invalueable info.
