i believe i have now found my favorite thing to do. that thing i is speaking of is forging! We did a forging project in Metals class, and it was bomb. I started by making a wrist piece, but after hours of frustration i decided to make a set of ear-rings. The strange thing is that i was not distraught with making the project. I even took my failed pieces and used them to make into a neck piece!
Making metal art has really been a great experience for me. I'll be doing an independent study next semester in order to keep learning, and perhaps even the blacksmith course this summer.
