Vendor was out of town but promptly responded with an email to manage my expectations about arrival times. Item arrived and is very nice. Would purchase again from this vendor.
Drums and Jewels
I started making jewelry in 2002 with materials I had acquired over the years - spools of cinematic film, scraps of leather, Soviet hologram pins and other treasures. Some of these materials were pieces of art in themselves, like the poker chips I use in my "Beginner's Luck" pieces. Some were discoveries I made while researching local and foreign markets for drum making supplies, drum-making being my main occupation. I already had a well equipped shop in place so it took only a few additions and a couple of months of intensive metal smithing lessons to get me started in the field.
