This past Fall I took MetalSmithing classes from a local artist. Her name is Mellissa Manley. She is a great teacher. She teaches techniques and not a project. That might not be for most students. For me it was fantastic. These are a few of the copper cuffs I made during open studio time. I am getting good with the blow torch. That is a really scary thought if any of you know me well enough and know how many times I have almost burned our house (s) down.
