William Hilliard's Profile
I have been making jewelry for 8 years, mostly working in silvers and coppers. I do injection casting, soldering, and wire-work mostly. My favorite work is with chainmail, scale mail, and heavy leather to make armor or medieval-ish items. In woodworking I have done work ranging from furniture to pahi (Hawaiian wooden knife). I recently learned book binding, where I bound the pages and attached them to a sturdy leather cover, then I added a smoother layer of soft leather to the outside.
My goal for the future is to get the tools required to start forging stronger and more complex items. Useful tools, trinkets, armor, and even blades.
