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!
