I have just had the BEST TIME EVAR (with the exclusion of dancing tiems), at a jewellery making class. We have five more weeks (doing some of the basics of making stuff out of metal sheet), and it is so very very very cool.

Even if I break more saw blades than almost anyone else :P

This week we did experimentation with scrap bits, homework is to begin designing something to make during class (suggested item is a pendant). Once we've finished making that (and learning about polishing and finishing and a few other things), we'll move onto another piece using different techniques such as soldering (suggested item is a ring).

Ah, now that sounds like fun! At last, a non-nerdy crafts class :D

It is funfunfunfunfunfunfunfun!

Although I have this idea which uses a whole bunch of tiny computer screws... Not going to make that in this class, I think the teacher would have a fit (the whole point of the pendant as my brain is envisaging it is to have a pretty pun :P )

Computer screws, eh? Hmm, my bro-in-law's GF makes gorgeous glass-based jewellery and often sells at the markets over your way. I wonder if the two of you might be moved to collaborate on some steampunk jewellery in the future...

Well, first I have to finish this course, and then Do Stuff. But that glasswork is gorgeous... WANT!

Doesn't she do marvellous work?! I've bought several pieces from her as gifts for friends. Sometimes I get a family discount, depending on whether she and Big Mad Adrian are on speaking terms in any given week. It's a lively relationship :P

You should see mum's jewellery making stuff...

Nothing exciting like metal manipulation, but she does have mountains of beads, chains, etc.
