theheartdepartment Early morning benchscapades. (Jewelry Bench + escapade = benchscapade). My very first friend in life has this Sterling fork left from her family's silverware. The tines were damaged in a garbage disposal, and instead of letting it sit in a drawer sad, she wanted a bracelet made with it. She doesn't know I'm putting the initial of her family name. Think she'll like it? (She's not on Insta 😎) 1w
  •   theheartdepartment You're welcome @marambika ! Yes, basic metalsmithing- or you can look at short individual classes, like soldering or bezel setting, and keep building up the foundation. Just depends on how much time you have to dedicate to a class. You should definitely check out New Approach. They have short 1 week defined focus classes as well as full length intensives. In my opinion, it's the best jewelry school in the nation & we're very lucky it's here in Nashville! A little Predators hockey & a jewelry class! 6d
  •   marambika Awesome Mariel. Thanks for the help. Much appreciated. 6d
  •   marambika Hah, @theheartdepartment, just checked our schedule and we will be in Naahville for hockey canp for my son @topshelf_snipes28 the same week there is the 5 day bench course at New Approach. That would be a great starting point for me I believe. Thank you for suggesting. I love kismet and angels. 1d

theheartdepartment It's dainty and awkwardly not perfect just the way I like. And, it spells my truth. Everything I learned & everything I love, is the beach. {it says Beach Hard on the inside} @partynabox @vignesenroute 🏼 @carrienunesjewelry this, a pair of earrings and the burning water flame pendant were my Saturday reward to work at the bench and ease back in after finishing tax season! Yay, still a jeweler 2w

theheartdepartment All these pansies were staring up at me, so helpless. They looked as if they were screaming for help. "The tulips stole our sunlight and now we're stuck in the shadows." But maybe they just don't know how good they have it in the shade. 2w

theheartdepartment This is a prime example of my selfie skills. More so, it's a prime example of @womensjewelryassociation : it's never about the me and it's always about the we. 2mon

theheartdepartment It's more fun to be real about life, than to sugar coat falsely. 😈 To all the ladies in the house that ain't scared to embrace the suck, do the work, and cuss like a sailor to get shit done! #happyinternationalwomensday and thanks to @elizabeth_gilbert_writer & @kdovel for reading my mind. 2mon
