Life's a bench!
Let's get down to chases, I mean cases, no I mean chasing hammers- oh boy. If you have happened upon this little ditty, you may be on a quest to start your own jewelry practice, expand the one you have or are just curious about something. Earlier this year I decided I would take my jewelry making to the next level- which for me was the bench, metal smithing, you know when the mallet hits the metal. I researched night after night day after day, searching for individuals who were offering up juicy tid bits and hefty morsels on what they suggest to include in a start up metal smithing kit. I compared prices on pre made kits, looked at all the stuff they were offering and knew that it was going to be the way it's always been for me, I was going to put together my own little piece of heaven, well at least a place in the shade.
I will be posting in digestible portions, my purchases, DIY tips, discoveries, suppliers and more. Feel free to download any PDF resources. If you have any tips or questions please share in the comments.
I will post a full list of tools next time, for now here they are in living color!
Much love- Mavis
