This is a review of Copper Etching kid's summer camp. This was a great way to spend a free week of my summer. You can make things from bookmarks and rings to bracelets and necklaces, and also a few of your own nick-knacks. You learn how to use things such as jewelry saws, torches, a rolling mill, and others. I look forward to taking other camps here. I would also like there to be a stone setting camp!
After watching a friend skillfully cut an opal during college in
1977, Jim Dailing knew that he had found an outlet for his creative
passion. He spent the next 10 years furthering his education and
gaining experience in a variety of metalsmithing techniques. His
enthusiasm and genuine love of the craft is evident in every piece
“Designing your unique engagement ring, wedding ring or
anniversary ring begins with a friendly chat. We will talk about
elements well beyond jewelry design; architecture, furniture,
nature, and anything that you are drawn to visually. All these
elements can be utilized in creating a custom ring design that is
stunning visually as well as personally empowering.”
With sources for award-winning gemstones and the skill to alloy
much of his own metal, Jim is able to create beautiful,
one-of-a-kind pieces to suit a variety of styles and budgets.
He also has experience incorporating recycled metals, such as a
grandmother’s wedding band or other family heirlooms.
