This past weekend I took a jewelry making workshop. My first jewerly/metal-working class. It was such a blast! The teacher was amazing and I learned so much and had so much fun doing it. This image is the project from the class. I made that!
So many new sensations, I decided to use this as my entry for Inspire Me Thursday's challenge to create with all five senses.
Sight - The metal glowing red as the solder melted and oozed, the blue flame of the torch
Sound - So many sounds - the teeth of the saw blade cutting through the metal, the woosh of the torch lighting up, the pounding of the hammers, the sizzle as the pieces hit the hot pickle.
Smell - The aroma of sulphur as the piece went into the liver of sulphur solution, the smell of metal lingering on my fingers at the end of the day.
Touch - The roughness of the sandpaper, the sharpness of the cut metal, the heat of a freshly soldered piece (ouch!).
Taste - The taste of the coffee that kept me going through the day long classes, and the M&Ms we shared as we shared our completed pieces. And I've definitely developed a taste for this jewelry making thing!
