Lexi Erickson is an established, award winning expert in metalwork for Lapidary Journal & more, and I'm so pleased I recently discovered her work when the infamous Jim Lawson photographed her jewelry in his new amazing, essential dvd How to Photograph Your Jewelry ($15 for immediate download & omg, so GOOD -- buy it!! Just buy it!!). Both Jim Lawson (just start looking at who photographs the jewelry for just about every jewelry magazine out there) & Lexi Erickson are the best! And I love the idea of knowing what to do with my metal work after I have soldered, pickled, and rinsed . . . and am thinking, "ok, now what?" LOL.. (btw, there is also a link for a DVD workshop on using machines to finish metalwork on the same page if you prefer machine finishing, such as using a flex shaft).
