Talking with Hadar Jacobson

Talking with Hadar Jacobson

Today I talk with Hadar Jacobson, jeweler, inventor, teacher and author!

Ms. Jacobson is well known and highly regarded in the metal clay community for her generosity with her teaching and her own line of metal clay products. With Hadar’s clay you have the choice to work in copper, bronze, steel, and stainless steel, and her instructional books are well designed with easy to follow instructions.

I love the combination of all the metals. I’m inspired to try something new!

Also this week, books, movies, and classes to chat about, plus some CRAFTCAST updates
