Do some virtual shopping and hang out with Tevel! Tevel is the long-time owner of Allcraft, the renowned jewelry/metals supply shop in midtown Manhattan. He joined us along with Jeanette Craig, author of "Soldering Demystified" to share new and intriguing jewelry tools. First Anne demonstrated using some of the tools on her mokume gane rings - really cool tiny sanding discs, an innovative ring holder and more. Then Tevel and Jeanette answered everyone's questions about these tools and many others. Earl showed off some very interesting delrin-lined pliers from a guitar-making company. We heard from viewers it was one of our best ever, at least for tool geeks (and who isn't??). Read on for resource links.
As we ended the year and the news of the new and more contagious covid variant came out, we really started to feel like we were in a crazy video game so, here we share with you our 2020 Game Recap.
Congratulations, it looks like you’ve made it with us to Level 12 of this awful Game of 2020. We’d give it no stars if possible; at this point all we can do is hold on to a sense of humor and keep going. Level 1 began well, we had a year of trips planned and classes scheduled for our Jewelry Lab business. The worst demon in our land, Orange Windbag, was slashed with the Sword of Impeachment and things were looking good! But then the Land of Koalas caught fire and rumors surfaced of a mysterious new foe in a distant land. Nevertheless, by Level 2 Ame had saved up enough Coin for a trip to visit her father, Vance of La Playa, in the Land of Mariachis and Anne made a foray to the nearby Land of Saguaro to learn patina alchemy.
