    Tips, Tools, Cudos:
    I Just opened the JewelryMonk Studio and Training Center, BUT
    I haven’t forgotten those of you who are not so close to SD, and that is why I Just re-released a Comprehensive video series, where, I have taken my years of jewelry experience, and simply and thoroughly developed a step by step video tutorial that covers the whole process of fabricating and soldering a piece of jewelry from the drawing, to final polishing.   It is called The Fabricated Pendant Project and I walk you through , In Video Form, every step from sketch to finished design.

    The Program has 19 videos that covers this process, as well as over 25 bonus videos along with it, literally hours and hours of content.
    Every podcast, I like to find people or companies that are doing it “right”, seeing past their situation and giving to something larger than themselves.

    Tip of the WEEK:
    Plastic Coated Paper Clips, With Video

    Cool Tool of the Week:

    I really enjoy sharing entertaining, encouraging, and educational content to anyone that is willing to listen, and has the heart of a learner.
    If you enjoy that as well, and enjoy what I am trying to create here, Leave me a comment or review somewhere…… anywhere you find JewelryMonk.
    But probably the most important thing you can do…… go to JewelryMonk.com and subscribe to the website, then you will be notified whenever I put out a new podcast, or better yet, a new video or tutorial on the website.
    As always…… tell a friend about the JewelryMonk podcast and website. It would be soooo appreciated.
    That’s it!         Until next time, This is Doug Napier, with the JewelryMonk Podcast.
    Now……Let’s Get Ready to Make the BEST Jewelry of your Life!

    Introducing the JewelryMonk Studio and Training Center in Rapid City, SD.  717 Main St.  605 718-5070
    Featuring: 
    The Tailored Faith Company is a local Black Hills Company that just launched a new website. Inspirational Designs and Giving Back
    Check Jasmine’s journey out at www.Tailoredfaithco.com
    Also Featuring:
    The Will-Hold Adjustable Soldering Aide
    It is an adjustable soldering pick on a magnetic ball. You put it where you need it, and it stays every time. You can adjust the tension with the push of a finger, and it stays put! The tip is tungsten as well, so solder won’t stick to it. He is backed up a little with production, but if you go to his website, you can get on the next pre-order list, which is just a week or two out.

Entertaining and useful!

I like how this podcast is structured into three or so segments for an easy to digest flow of information that keeps your attention. I appreciate that he gives his own life wisdom in a way that pertains to the jewelry subject matter as well as the actual nuts and bolts of making things. I will keep listening, this is really nicely done.
