Great giveaway - I need to get into doing things with fire at home. I have recently made a supply of textured copper, made by running annealed metal through a rolling mill with various items ranging from metal mesh to papyrus heads. Now I just need to decide what to do with all of it!

Would Love to be able to add soldering to my jewelry. I used to solder computer parts so hopefully it would be like riding a bike if I was able to start again ;-)

Unknown said...

I can only imagine how much fun this project would be.

After watching Lisa Niven Kelly's class (the first lesson) on Craftsy, I fixed some earrings I made as I didn't know how to make loops properly.

So much fun for the lucky winner!

stacy.visconti@us.logicalis.com said...

I have beading ADD ~ like to try many techniques and keep it fun :) I recently bought the press and snap tool, so I am having fun with making leather cuff bracelets out of old belts. I like to jazz them up with metal, beads and cord to add that extra element. Stamping on metal is still one of my favorite things. I would *love* to win this giveaway. Thank you!!

Shauna Bare said...

Like many here, I am in the process of learning to solder. Due to limited resources of jewelry-making classes in my area, the Beaducation videos and books like Simple Soldering by Kate Richbourg are invaluable to me. I have been buying tools as I can to complete a basic soldering kit, so I would love to finally have everything so I can start doing! My current project is an earring and cuff bracelet set for my aunt using wire wrapping and Swarovski crystals.

Anonymous said...

I have made a pair of simple drop earrings, and a suncatcher. I will finish two necklaces this weekend, then start organizing my workroom so it will have space for a soldering station. I've been super-motivated by Kate Richbourg's "Soldered Rings and Bezels"!!

I've been playing around with soldering recently and boy do I need practice. Having the right tools will probably go a long ways towards getting a professional finish. Even if I don't win, I will soon be looking into some new tools.

Good luck to everyone! Looks like a great prize package!

LindaK said...

I've completed several kumihimo necklaces and a few PMC pieces.

rookieoftheyear said...

I just started making jewelry recently, and I decided to make this IU necklace to celebrate basketball season! I live in Bloomington so it's a big time of year for us. Instead of adding a basketball charm, I wanted to be a bit more subtle so I used hammered copper for the charm. My stamping isn't perfect yet, but it'll get better:

Can't wait to learn new techniques!

I've been trying my hand at wire working. I love it! My biggest problem is jump rings. I don't trust them! I made a beautiful bracelet with extensive stamping for a dear friend and she lost it. I am convinced that the connecting jump rings were to blame. I would love to sauder them shut!

Tricia Hartzell said...

I've been working on getting my desk set up since I moved and have continued to make pendants for necklaces. I've been waiting a while now to start riveting and especially soldering so this would be PERFECT timing for this set! You all have are awesome!

I'm not sure I've FINISHED any projects this month... I've worked on some though in several different crafts like sewing and crochet...

but I recently found out I have to move in a few months, so I'm about to dig in and start organizing all my jewelry making supplies and tools (and tools and supplies for my other crafts as well). and even though I'm cutting back on other possessions, there's no way I'll give up any of my craft stuff! (I need it for my own mental health! I'm chronically ill and all my crafts help me cope.)

Nirriana said...

Have done a few things since I've discovered this amazing site.
my favorite is a green leather cuff with layers of silver plated items. Used Rivets, that I think is so practical for so many projects.

I have several projects going at the same time: finishing a necklace/ bracelet for myself (this will be the first ever set I've made that I haven't given away or sold), learning to work with Ranger Inks (so far, so good and I've fallen in love with their quality and color saturation over raw copper!), and making leather wrap bracelets for two sweet young ladies in my life, and finally, perfecting my soldering with solder for copper/brass (it really does match the colors!!). Now, off to bed to dream of winning this one.

Linda Cioch said...

MadHatter said...

I've spent most of my time trying to clear out my stash by actually using some of it! Mostly, I've made bracelets, which I haven't done much of before. Usually I make necklaces with matching earrings, but I find that I enjoy making bracelets. I'm done sooner & have more product to show for my time. Don't know why I haven't done this before!

Sarah said...

I'm a metal stamper! I love making necklaces <3

I absolutely love Beaducation. You have given me the opportunity to expand my creativity and venture out to try new ideas. I have begun soldering and love it.

Always wanted to try a butane torch. Thanks for all you provide.

I am teaching myself metal stamping. I would like to learn to solder so that I can layer metals. I do dental soldering and have always wanted to incorporate it into my jewelry making.

March 2013 I have used up many of my Florida shells into wire work,(small bib necklaces) made some bead pendants, and taught some 4-H girls to crochet. Really had fun! Now I would like to learn how to solder.

I fabricated a bezel set to hold a nice rough cut ruby stone. Love it! It looks a bit rustic but also "renaissanceish" if that's even a word. Made it into a ring.
