I haven't updated in over a year, and I think it's fair to say that this blog is dead. I'm leaving it up for those who still want access to the tutorial, but if you're waiting for new info then you should probably give it up :)
I've moved the DC and am applying for PhD places. Sadly, I no longer have the time to devote to jewellery making, though I do still accept commissions.
Thank you for all your support and encouragement :)
