I have stopped my Newsletter for now.  If you want to read past issues, click on this little link! There is lots of great advice and inspiration to be unearthed. (I am in the process of editing all issues and updating the links and some content. Hopefully, I’ll finish this project…sigh)

Project and Technique Videos

Did you know that I have a video on Craftsy?  It’s called Prong Setting from Start to Finish.  Learn how to create three different types of prong settings. 

Riveted Portrait Pendant Project Video

I also have a project video on Gumroad it’s called The Riveted Portrait Pendant.

You’ll learn how to create a polymer clay image transfer, how to saw and pierce metal, the creation and uses for rivets, work with acrylic, pattern metal, and more.  As a bonus, I’ll show you how to make this killer chain (see image below).

  This chain has so many variations!  

This is an older video (I’m ten years younger in it, though!  Worth watching for that alone – at least for me!  Ha). But all the techniques are still relevant, and it’s a great project.

Download speeds are current.
