OK, I've been really busy in the studio the last few weeks, making PMC pieces. I really love the metal smithing class, but I have to say that it's not really as fulfilling for me as creating with metal clay. There is so much more fuss, and planning involved. And to tell you the truth, I am not really turned on by all the hammering. As far as the torch goes, soldering is a lot of fun, but the nasty pickle is, well...nasty.
