I'm super excited to be signed up for 2 engraving classes this year at GRS Training in Emporia, Kansas. If you have an interest in engraving or stone setting I highly recommend attending classes there. I really look forward to spending a week with other metalsmiths/jewelers. This year I will be taking deep Relief and Western style engraving.
I bought my first little pieces of gold last year so I'm anxious to make a few higher end pieces this year(and work on that stone setting!)
Personally I need to get a hold of my weight! Gained ten pounds last year so I have got to watch my sweets and walk more. So far I've signed up for a yoga class as I also need to work on getting the blood pressure down!
It should be a fun year, I've already made two pieces that I am really pleased with.
Check out my fellow teammates and their thoughts on the upcoming year:
