Some lessons for Yuxin from mainland China

To make a short story long: Mary Loomis met Yuxin's American "mother" and in talking together Mary discovered that Yuxin would like to learn how to make jewelry. Mary quickly volunteered her husband Tom Loomis to give Yuxin some lessons. (Tom was the jewelry & sculpture teacher at the local university for 30 plus years.) While Yuxin was working and learning at the Loomis home, she noticed a couple of my pieces on the walls and showed an interest is learning about my art. Tom called me and we arranged for Yuxin to visit my cellar studio and learn my techniques. Below she is removing some color from her first piece:
