For Lena who asked about my classes. (her's was a nonreply comment so I shall have to post to reply to her.) My private lessons are taught in my studio and are geared toward whatever the student wants to learn. I do cover basic jewelry making from the begining if that is what you'd like. The first two hour class usually covers shaping metal-sawing, drilling, piercing. Then we move into riveting and cold joining, and finally soldering with the last two lessons. At that point you can decide if you want to continue. Metalsmithing is a diverse field so there's lots to try from jewelry, to vessel forming, to enamelling!
