Metalsmiths, gravers, engraving, jewelry artists network

Yesterday was spent in Philly. Or thereabouts. ūüôā

More like the town of Chester. Only about an hour and 45 minutes away is the studio of my friend Rina. . . and yesterday we came from far and wide and joined together in Rina’s amazing studio to spend a day absorbed in creative endeavors.

OK, ok, maybe that’s stretching it a bit. We came from MD, Jersey, the Poconos….and down the street. But we did spend an amazing day together!

We were absorbed

and we kept Rina in her studio from before noon until well into the night. I left at 9pm and they were just getting started on grinding/moifying gravers!

During the day, Gary went over several different kinds of chains
