Day one at jewellery school- tools of the trade

Tools of the trade
Mmm pliers
A vast array of pliers and wire 

Today was the first morning of my 4 week Charm/Amulet making course with Sarah Hyams. I took lots of photos (hopefully didn't irritate the others too much) and i'll update with what we actually got up to today later, but in the meantime here's a few photos of some of the tools of the trade. Pliers, copper wire, masking tape, reverse action tweezers, gas torches and piercing saws. I can let you in on the news that for the first time in years I am writing this with a bracelet around my wrist, so the update tomorrow won't be a photo of me sitting crying because I can't work out how to do it!
