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

Spaces available in new Jewellery/ Art studio in Vancouver

Hello Friends,

I am about to sign a lease on a studio, and am looking for 2 really great long-term studio mates for February 1! It's suitable for other jewellers or other artists who don't need a huge space.
The space is a 600 square foot suite of offices on the second floor of a 2-storey building. The common area will have some shared jewellery equipment (polishing machine, rolling mill, and vise), as well as…

Wunderbar! Bis dann!!

I've never been to a SNAG conference , so I'm kind of pumped ... Just have a big order to finish before I go, so I will arrive exhausted for sure, but it'll be good to get together with people who have the same priorities. Looking forward to meeting you.

Hi there, Karina.


Cool stuff! I see you went to Germany; that's where I'm from! Alas, I live on the East Coast of Canada now. I'll be coming up to Vancouver for a day after the SNAG conference in Seattle, and would like to check out a few possible galleries. Do you know of any? Any pointersa would be much appreciated!
