Congratulations to Laura Jensen from Fort St. John, British Columbia, February’s Random Review Winner! Laura has won a $100 Cool Tools Gift Certificate for reviewing some sanding pads that she purchased from us! Each Random Review Winner gets their choice of Metal Clay or a Gift Certificate!
Laura shared photos of her work, told us a little about herself, and was very excited to have been selected!
Here’s a little about me:
My grandfather was a diamond appraiser and jeweler in the ‘burbs of Toronto in the 1950’s. When I was born much later, I spent my visits sneaking down into his basement shop to quietly watch him across the tall expanse of his battered work station. Making. Creating. Inspiring.
That’s where this really began for me and though I’ve graduated from pony-beads, gimp and Fimo, to PMC, fine silver and gemstones, the love and desire to create something different and beautiful has never wavered. You’ll find me with a fresh brewed pot of tea, sitting across the expanse of my battered work desk with at least five Cool Tools products in reach. I may never inspire as my Grandfather did, but I’m always making and creating.”
The top photo is a pair of Emerald Earrings made with Silver Clay. The bottom photo shows a forged necklace Laura made using our fine silver wire. We hope Laura’s work provides everyone with some inspiration!
