I don’t know about you, but I am not dressed until I put on earrings. Some time ago, I decided that it was just too expensive to buy my chandeliers retail, so I began learning how to make them, and all my earrings, for a fraction of the cost.
I have been a dabbler in jewelry making for better than 30 years. I love teaching and sharing trade secrets. Mainly self taught, I have taken metalworking and lampworking classes. I studied lampworking with legend Kate Fowle Meleney but gave up the craft after the squirrels ate my rubber gas hoses! I consider my jewelry making skill level to be advanced intermediate.
If you ever have a question, please feel free to post it in the Comments of any post.
