What a fun semester at West City Center, Point Loma. The all-levels class focused on rings - bent, soldered, carved, with stones and without. I was particularly pleased with the creativity of some of the beginners - check out the wearable brass fish ring by Andrea, top center. In the advanced class we worked with bimetals, exotic Japanese alloys, shell-forming and marriage of metals. It was a lot to absorb, but many came up with some amazing projects, especially Julie with her celestial bracelet and Chanalin's bee! The spring advanced class will include some time to catch up and practice the techniques learned in the fall and last spring (vessel fabrication).
