I am officially now a student. I love it. Had started to get that stuck in a rut kind of feeling, everything getting a bit Groundhog Day so needed something to shake things up. I’d seen this silversmithing and jewellery course a couple of years ago but never got around to signing up for it. I finally got my ass into gear and enrolled. I’ve only been to one session, but so far it’s the best decision I’ve made in a long time.
The first session was a get straight in there kind of session. All us newbies walked away with a fully polished, perfectly fitting ring with our own designs and completely handmade.
The brief was very simple, make a ring that fits and hammer a design into it. I went with an all over ‘H’ design, it is all about me after all. I’m honestly not that much of a narcissist. I kind of like it, looks a little bit liked ‘HI’.
So proud of myself for a first attempt. It’s still a little bit messy around the solder line and the edges but that’s where practice comes in.
So excited for the next 15 weeks of experimenting and making!
