Behind, Ahead, Learning, Changing.. HAPPY BIRTHDAY ME

I need rest!!
So for my birthday in February I got to go down to McMinnville and visit my Face Book friend Marcy Bell who makes some of the most amazing jewelry as you'll see on her Etsy or you can see Marcy Bell on her Facebook page.  Any how..   As I was saying.  I got to go down there for a few days and she worked me to death just look at how she wore me out!!

Soup was on the menu

The Ametrin Ring on the Left Marcy made!

My First Ring!

Second using a stamp on it

Spinner Ring AMAZING 

As you can see we had a great time.  I was amazed at how much easier it was to do than I thought,  yet how much time had to go into the prepping of each piece!  I can't wait to see what I get to make hopefully in a couple months when I go back down to play.   She's supposed to teach me how to make something like these stacker rings she has on (well that's my plan) using those topazes I bought at the last gem show I went to.   Either way it was a great time with a new friend that got me some amazing new skills!!
