Not been too crafty lately but..

Tonight I started my first class in Jewellery design at my local adult education centre πŸ˜€

The tutor is a lovely German lady… http://www.oliviaschlevogt.com

and she got me working on a piece of square copper, this is what happened..

IMG_2160sawed a circle…which left me with lovely glittery hands πŸ™‚

IMG_2162hammered it to make a dome

IMG_2163drilled it , drew on it and sawed it some more πŸ™‚

IMG_2166Polished it to revel my wonderful errr sawing skills, top marks for wonkyness, still not bad for a beginner:)

Not quite here yet..17butterflybut working on it!

Now I need a workspace
