On a recent cold, dreary and wet Wednesday, Boston Handmade members heated things up (literally) at a basic Metalsmithing Workshop. Betsy of Stonehouse Studio opened her studio to Amy of Amy Olson Jewelry and Katy of muchacha K to practice drilling, texturing, forging, soldering and finishing. Amy had a very delicate touch and sweet talked her way around the metal. Katy, a.k.a. Rosie the Riveter, dove right in and was not about to let those tools get the best of her.

A good time was had by all, some basic skills acquired and we all got to show off our very chic safety goggles. Betsy's Bono style, Katy's Jackie-O shades and Amy's Homer from Home Depot model.
