Riveting: Helen Driggs Shares Her Favorite Cold Connections

Salt and pepper, peanut butter and jelly, flowers and chocolate (especially dark), all these goodies go hand in hand just like metal magic and Helen Driggs! She amazes me with all the different types of creations she comes up with using metals. And since cold connections are so "hot" these days, I went back into the archives and found this fantastic article from Helen talking about her 7 Favorite Cold Connections, on our sister site Jewelry Making Daily.

Want more great tips on cold connections? Helen has released yet another video exploring the essentials of metalsmithing (and in this case, riveting and cold connections). Check out this clip from Helen's new DVD, I know you will love it as much as I did!

Pre-order Helen's new DVD, Metalsmith Essentials: Riveting and Cold Connections and start heating up your studio!

The best is yet to bead!
