Years ago I took many classes in metalsmithing. (Too many years ago...I'm not telling how many, but trust me, it was a long time ago.) Recently I decided it was time to get back to it, as I wanted to try some new ideas with my beach stone and seaglass SToNZ jewelry.
Last week I made my first silver tube rivets. SO much fun. Seriously. I am addicted to this.
I didn't even damage any stones, which is a minor miracle. I wonder if I can do this with beach glass without smashing it to bits?
I think I will make some of these into keyrings for Father's Day items in my Etsy shop.
I also made a few bezel set stone things....
Now my brain is spinning with new ideas.
