It only makes sense that I would explore metalsmithing to enhance my stone cabochons and make them wearable! Like everything else, metalsmithing takes lots of practice, requires lots of supplies, and most of all requires tons of patience!
I can say that I’ve learned that there are no shortcuts in metalsmithing. Mistakes made along the way can’t be corrected in the next step, so focusing on getting each step in the process correct is key.
Take a look at my portfolio to see some of the cool things I’m making!
