    Lol my "studio" may stand in three boxes, but I have a real hard time keeping everything else I own in such tiny spaces! I'm a total mess XD

    If you still have some of your dad's tools, I think you could totally buy a book such as The Complete Metalsmith and experiment by yourself, if you ever feel like doing so. Besides the torch, you'd only need a saw, some files and maybe a churn or rotary tool with some brushes to polish a bit. Oh and some acid to clean up your metal after heating/brazing (in french we call it "déroché", I can't find what it is in english...) I think you could do some pretty neat things!

    I studied at the jewelry school of Montréal and it was AWESOME =) I know someone who attended workshops in the States too, but I don't know where... But if you take classes, you'll be addicted, I tell you! lol The possibilities are endless...

    HP: It seems that a lot of us find ATCs just when we need them, and then they become an addiction of epic proportions. I'm really interested in seeing more of your jewelry. I've learned to weld, and I poured bronze once, but I've never made any jewelry... which seems silly now, since my father was a jeweler, and my mother was, briefly, a diamond setter. I've made some beaded jewelry, but it's not the same!

    I kind of wish I could compartmentalize my art supplies into three boxes. My studio... omg. It's overwhelming most days, so i sit down and make ATCs when I could be doing large paintings, because there's only enough space clear to work on something tiny. I'm trying to clean it in honor of spring. Help meeeeeeeeeee. lol

    Not many places around here offer jewelry, and the summer course offered by a University in driving distance always has a wait list way in advance. One day, though... one day. =)

    This is great! It looks exactly like your sketches do - I'm so impressed that you could translate the 2-D into 3-D using metal. And the box that it is kept in is such a fantastic touch. Details make everything better.
