I enjoyed the webinar with Tracey Spurgin very much. I am so glad to have discovered CraftCast! I am a total newbie to PMC and can only read so much in books and magazines about working with this crazy metal clay without seeing projects in progress live. My experience with jewelry making is mostly fabrication from sheet and making my own chains but Tracey did an awesome job clearly explaining the steps of the project. I am so pleasantly surprised at how good my first true pendant turned out! I am not a texture lover when it comes to my design style but I can totally see myself incorporating some of the techniques I learned into future pieces. I already am thinking about my next CraftCast course! Thank you!
