houston maker space: beginning jewelry making class

2014 October 1

IMG_7417just on a whim, i took an intro to jewelry class at houston makerspace last month. i like it so much i signed up for the next series class “beginning jewelry making” the following week. so this is where and how i’ve spent my last three monday evenings: cutting // filing // drilling // grinding // and learning to use an oxy/acetylene torch. the first class was just an intro to tools and techniques, from there we came up with a project and claire webb (our instructor) helped us out.





IMG_7423i made a half a dozen rings, the most exciting of which uses a piece of fluorite i bought from the rock shop in marfa, tx a few years ago. (there is a close up below) the rest are just simple bands or adjustable brass ones. point is, i loved this class and  i’m excited to either take the next one in the series, or at least get a houston makerspace membership and come back on my own. if i like you in real life, get ready to get some brass stacking rings for christmas!
