Pouncing Rain is in Bellingham, Washington and is a Jewelry School and Lab. I went there last weekend for a 3 day course doing things I have not yet done and made this very large broach, suitable for keeping a shawl wrapped around you! The new techniqes were cutting metal out from within a piece of metal with a jeweler's saw, soldering with acetylane torches and the other new thing was soldering a bezel around a stone. I was a great class and intensive. We also made a bracelet, a narrow copper with embilishments soldered on. I really enjoyed it as I could read how to do things forever but seeing and doing makes all the difference. Thanks Judi Gauthier, you are a great teacher!
