Welcome to Stormflight Designs


If you've always wondered about how jewelry is made and fine craft is done, this is the blog for you! Our intent is to show you the step-by-step of creating jewelry from a silver-smith's and lampworker's point of view. We'll throw in some other interesting craft-work too. Consider this a "tutorial-light" blog in a way. You'll get to see the creative process from start to finish. Sometimes it may take a while to get to the finish, so please be patient! We often have to wait for the muse to strike--sometimes in the middle of a different project!

My week at Art 'Camp" in GA

I've just spent another week in the hills of GA for a week of learning more silver-smithing techniques.  I had a great time as usual.  If you ever get the chance, I highly recommend the school:  William Holland School of Lapidary Arts.  It is so beautiful I wish I could stay longer!
Every day we'd make our way down to the dining hall for breakfast and then off to class until lunch.  Then back to class until dinner.  After dinner there is always some activity to keep you busy.  There is an Auction to benefit the school (it is non-profit) and a tailgate night when everyone can put out their work for sale.  I love looking through the stones to add to my collection.

We brought home a little passenger...

Work in progress. 

I will post pictures of the items I made soon.  My last project is 3/4 of the way done...I'll keep you posted on the progress!

I had a great time!
