I am half-way through my semester at the University and I am loving my classes  of Western Civ, Art History II and Jewelry I.  In my Jewelry class, we have learned that the most important step to jewelry making is to the decide which metals will be used in your piece. Each metal has a different melting temperature and things can get messy depending which metals being used. Metals that are available are bronze, brass, copper, nu-silver,  gold, sterling etc. I was surprised to learn that these metals are available in sheet form.
