virtual metalsmithing...?

I am pretty much a hands-on, old school, manual arts type person.

this said, I was recently shown this amazing metalsmithing tool - the imakejewelry app for the iphone (or ipod touch), by incredible jewelery artist Victoria Lansford.

I would usually scoff at some techie thing like this... but this is AN AMAZING BENCH TOOL. every imaginable gauge, weight & length conversion, ring sizing by gauge, and all sorts of info on stones... IN YOUR POCKET!

all that and it's under four dollars. worth it's weight in silver.


  1. Oooh, thanks. Just downloaded it. Awesome!

  2. This is awesome! I never would have known about this otherwise- thanks for the tidbit, lady!


  3. it's worth it for the ring sizing conversions alone :)

  4. you've just given me one more reason to lash out on an iphone :)

  5. Now I wish I had an i phone. Thank you for sharing all your *finds* , lovely lady :)
