Silversmithing and Ceramics - Making Rings

Today we spent our second day in the metals studio at CraftStudies in Hanover, NH. We worked with Kerstin Nichols, a metals artist, jeweler, and very patient teacher of metalsmithing and of creativity.  

Having taught us the basic skills yesterday, Kerstin let us loose to play today. She worked with each of us, asking us about our plans and our visions, and tried her best to help us realize them. She helped us step by step, talking about design and variation and process, and every person created several rings they are proud of.

I literally couldn't get the kids out of the studio on time. They wanted to keep playing oops I mean working...  Come see on our rings during the symposium on Saturday!
