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!

My interest in metalsmithing started at 19 when I moved to Taos New-Mexico where I studied Navajo, Zuni and Hopi techniques and traditions, specially Navajo stamp work. I was then drawn to the work in West Africa when I moved to Mali, where I studied Touareg, Fulani and other techniques that have been passed from one generation to another in the apprenticeship tradition. In the modern world, these techniques are getting lost and I was moved to attempt to preserve them by writing a book called Legacy, jewelry techniques of West Africa. Through that time I developed a style of metalsmithing using stamps that I call Stampclastic. Stamping holds a special place in my heart; it is a technique that can be done...
