Q&A with djmiller41071548

vjdunham110917 asked:
I love copper! I see nothing wrong with them.....Good Job!
djmiller41071548 answered:
Thanks! I think I'll just frame these earrings as my first sawing project, though.
Kokonow asked:
Oh! it should be your "first success at metalwork " !!!!! :)
djmiller41071548 answered:
Aw! I can tell you are a true artist. I am an artist in waiting. I was a scientist and now I'm a teacher. When I retire in a couple of years, I plan on becoming a true artist, also...precision and perfection, the hallmarks of my past two professions, will be a thing of the past. I love "getting into the zone" when I'm sawing metal.!

I have watched Kate's class online and just finished. Been purchasing all the pieces and parts. Finally got my arts and crafts room all cleaned and organized, ready to try out these new skills! You did great and this was just the first time attempt. Have to start somewhere and i am proud of your success! Well done! I am stoked about the flower/tube project.

You are starting exactly like I did. You are going to get hooked! I just bought a Loritone tumbler, a mandrel and vise and a bunch of sheet metal. I wish all of us could get together to help teach each other. My community doesn't have any jewelry metal working classes.
