Jump into Engraving
work by GRS Training Center

Tuesday, April 22nd, 2014 Published in: 2014 Archives

Stuck-on bandages. Cold swimming pools. Hand engraving. With some things in life, you just have to prepare for the challenge ahead and do it.

Hand engraving isn’t easy. Sure, certain tools and training make it not as challenging, but learning to hand engrave takes dedication and patience — and that is what makes it so worthwhile.

To kick off the 2014 training year at GRSTC, we hosted a private jewelry class with professional jeweler and hand engraver Todd Daniels. A group of nine students, all young professionals with varying years and degrees of experience, traveled together to Kansas to learn hand engraving skills from Todd.

By the end of the week, several had already either added engraving to a piece of his jewelry or had planned out future designs for hand engraving techniques. As each begins to add hand engraving to his work, we will feature projects from these artists showing off these new skills.

The thing about cold swimming pools is that, once you’ve been in the water a while, you get more and more comfortable with the temperature. Are you ready to jump into hand engraving? Call us today if you would like to have a private group class at the GRS Training Center: 800-835-3519.
