First Piece

I got to reminiscing about the very first piece I made when I started taking metalsmithing classes back in SF. The days of the deer (and big belts) are slipping away, but I still love this buckle (especially the green eye!).

Tonight I'm starting a gold class at 174 Studio in Williamsburg. I've only worked in silver, brass, copper, etc. so I'm super excited to work with a new metal. We start with pure 24 karat gold and custom alloy it to create 14 karat gold in a custom color. Then I'll make a piece with it. Stay tuned...
