I'm loving this metalsmithing class

I am still loving my metalsmithing class. Right now we're learning how to make band rings - not with stones on them, but with various other embellishments. I'm making myself a thumb ring - why not? I still have to finish other projects because each time we had to design something I took too long. I'm not the only one who did that and who's behind in stuff. I know what I need to do to finish and next class I hope to get it all done.

It turns out that the instructor will be holding a next-level class in April. It's still considered introductory because there are so many techniques we haven't yet learned. We should be getting information next week about this next class although she has said that it'll be held on Tuesday nights. I think I'm going to take that class as long as it's not too expensive and the dates work out. So far, Tuesdays for the next couple of months are looking good for metalsmithing.

At some point, if I do end up enjoying creating things as much as I think I do, I'll want to start investing in equipment. I already have a couple of things but there's a whole lot of stuff that I could definitely use and it isn't cheap. I don't want to go out and buy things until I need them. I don't want to get too excited and just buy stuff because I want to be sure that I need the things before shelling out money for them. There's no sense getting ahead of myself.

Sounds like fun. I just signed up for some beading classes myself.
