    I posted these on Instagram earlier - "product testing" is my favorite thing about making jewelry I've been wearing these all week.

    I've put in an order for a pair of those earrings! LUV them!
    And I'm harassing Battah to experiment with making a ring for me with some special pearls.
    So excited! Will keep you all posted.

    It gives a good overview of most techniques you might want to try, and explains really clearly. After that I found a teacher who I convinced to give me Skype lessons so I could troubleshoot stuff - of course I can never do things the normal way, all the projects I wanted to create ended up requiring me to invent new ways to do them, so books weren't enough! But that book is a great starting point, and I'm happy to chat about anything too!
    I'm very late in replying to your post, but I wanted to thank you for the recommendation. I didn't realize it when I asked you for a book recommendation, but it turned out my husband had already ordered this very book when he ordered the clay. It looks very informative!

    Thank you so much Marianne, Purr, Kay, Sanippy, pattye, and SS! I'm going to make a bunch of these, I'm really loving my pair and they seemed well received on instagram and facebook.

    PD, that's great! I really found it helpful. A lot of the techniques are only covered briefly, but it gives a great foundation and gives you enough flavor to see what kinds of techniques you'd like to focus on. There's also a really great group on Facebook called Metal Clay Now that I found very helpful.
