Introduction - Hi I'm Darlene
dweberg - Thursday, November 11, 2010 - 10:15amJewelry My introduction to Metal Work
Hi. I just found the ArtMetal site and wanted to introduce myself. My name is Darlene, I live in Northern Virginia, and I make jewelry for fun. I've sold a few pieces along the way and have managed to earn back the money that I put into buying equipment and materials.
I started making jewelry almost two years ago. I started with beadwork and moved into doing some silver and copper wire knitting. And then into working with silver and have done some brass as well. I've worked a little with soldering. I've only done a couple of pieces so far. When we moved last year, I lost the basement area. Since we now live in an apartment there isn't anywhere that doesn't have a sprinkler. I'm currently looking for a place that I can solder once in a while since I can still do most of the work in the apartment. I look forward to reading up on the ArtMetal members and all of the work that you do. Below are a few items that I've made so far.
