EZ Torch, Orca cleaning

Hey there!I'm a pretty new silver smith! I have just started up a little work bench of my own and I bought the EZ torch. It has been working really well the last few months, but this week the flame has started to surge and sputter. Tonight I was just about to anneal a piece of silver and I went to light the torch, It made a fire ball and the flames fell back running down the handle, I turned off both knobs but the flame didn't go out until I blew it out! so after I was sure the flame was out I…See More

Tell us about your education.
In 2003, I was busy working on a math-based thesis for my MBA at the University of New Brunswick. Looking for a bit of relief from the stress of writing the thesis, I began dabbling in jewellery design, experimenting with silver and semi-precious stones. I became so captivated by the processes involved in working with silver that the thesis ended up being behind schedule. A friend commented that the jewellery-making was not "anti-stress" but "anti-thesis" and thus Antithesis Designs was born.

Of course, I did finish my thesis and graduated with a Masters Degree in Business in 2004. Now, four years later, Antithesis Designs is thriving as I continue to design, create and sell my jewellery. I also teach the art of silver wire and chainmaille.

Although I prefer the properties of sterling silver, I also work with fine silver, gold, gold filled wire and copper.

In the past two years I have decreased my working hours outside my craft and have also increased income from sales of jewellery.

Hi Deborah,
I sat with you at an ACTS seminar and first met you at NSDCC summer market. Just thought I'd say Hi! Will you be coming this summer ?
