I've just started a 6 week silver smithing course right here in Darwin!!!. My first class was tonight and I had a ball.Our first thing was to make a sterling silver ring by measuring and using a jewellers saw to cut a strip. Next we soldered it, hammered a pattern and then polished it. I was amazed at how it all came together. I didn't break any saw blades but still manged to drop and tip over stuff left right and centre....all in the name of art I say *grin*. Who knew you can use cheap house hold items as a flux and pickle solutions!!!Here is my first sterling silver ring. Not perfect but it fits and I love it.
I think there will be more sterling silver creations to come now and another door opens in my creative life :o).
