The folks in my introduction to Metalsmithing and Jewelry I class have been working hard to complete their tattoo inspired jewelry pieces. I have really missed teaching intro, since starting all of the digital fab courses at Milwaukee, so it's great to be "back in the saddle" again. My students are doing great work and I know they are all proud of their work. I helped several of the students with their finishing late last week and a couple over the weekend as I was working on reburbishing the casting machine. I look forward to showing the completed pieces here soon.
