Some how the stars aligned, and a new chapter has opened. I started taking silver-smithing classes, my forever dream, and in the midst gained an apprenticeship. He is teaching me all he knows and I couldn't be more ecstatic. It feels so good to learn and go through all the trials and errors.. melting, soldering, sawing, too big, too small, start over, start over, and learn how to make it work. It has opened a whole new world. I don't want to rush the process, so hold tight for more to come. In the meanwhile, check out the beautiful pieces of Master Silversmith Levent Oz. (and the website I am tirelessly helping him with) www.silverofoz.com
took a little weekend trip to Richmond, VA and was immediately inspired by their brick streets, vibrant murals, and picturesque landscapes. I bought these charms awhile ago and finally bit the bullet and put them to use.
