Following up on my previous post about some upcoming projects – I recently had another article featured in The Hip & Urban Girl’s Guide about making your own jewelry. This has always been an interest of mine & I wanted to put my creative energies into use by trying out a Silversmithing class. After doing some research, I chose to try some classes at The Devil’s Workshop (890 Queen St. W) in Toronto. I started off by taking a Silversmith for Beginners class where students learn to create a unique piece of jewelry tailored to them out of silver, copper or brass. I am very happy that I took this class, it only fueled my interest in jewelry making even more! Since then I have created some great pieces that I still love & wear. It has been a long time since I’ve felt so focused on a project (filing, sawing, polishing), it felt so good to create something out of scratch from start to finish! What’s great about the class is that it is a small class size allowing for a lot of attention from the instructor.
