Congratulations to Bonnie Kyles, the winner of the February Cool Tools Survey Contest. Bonnie has won a $100 gift certificate simply for offering us her thoughts.
Bonnie was excited and told us a little about herself:
I just retired from 38 years of teaching elementary students, my number one passion, so am devoting a large portion of my time to a more recent passion: wire and metal jewelry design. A few years ago I started wireworking and then realized I could easily combine that with metalsmithing to create an endless array of designs! I took a basic metalsmithing class and have continued to broaden my skill set primarily through reading books and through pure experimentation.
The bracelet is an example of some of the techniques I’ve been focusing on recently. I rolled copper tubing with paper to get the wavy lines, did a heat patina and riveted the components.
Thank you in advance for the the gift certificate. I will put it to good use!
