The lessons are going great. I really like it, though it's rather hard work, very physically demanding for my weak arms and fingers. This is what I made in my first two lessons. It's a "bombay" style ring, made of 1 mm thick sterling silver sheet and hammered gently on the outside. Size 14 (US 6.5). Right now I'm working on a silver ring with a stone cabochon and some engraving. The only downside is that it is a very expesive venture. I will need lots of jeweller's equipment, including a special desk, a burner and various tools, not to mention the raw materials.
