I Work with Metal, too!

I forgot to tell you that I work with metals, too! I do a  little soldering for bezels, metal etching, and cold working, of course!  I love metal etching because you can etch any design in your metal piece that you can outline on your piece. There are two ways: using rubber stamps and photo etching. To do photo etching you have to have a certain type of copier which I don't have so for me it's rubber stamps and/or hand drawing. Here are some pieces I have made over the last couple of years.I make most of the earwires, clasps and jump rings for my pieces.
