@melody, when i was a jewelry student i had a lot of success working with copper wire esp heavier stuff found in mains wiring. fairly cheap (or free if you find salvage) and about the same 'feel' as silver. so good for exploring ideas with for final work with not so cheap materials.

No problem.  Plus, you get to slap the 'hand-made' label on the stuff, which adds to the price you can charge.

I'd be very interested in seeing what you come up with.

Hm, good point, I didn't think of the Renn community. Thank you!

I dunno, the only thing I'm comming up with is the Renn Faire community.  They have a lot of metalworkers.  I'm not sure how well they'd fit into your budget, though.  They tend not to run cheap.  Maybe if your designs were relatively simple, and you did a bulk order, it would come out to a reasonable price.

SO! I'm thinking about making a line of jewelry (and accessories, home decor etc) that have an atheist theme. I have a few ideas for necklace pendants, coffee mugs and such, and I plan to make a website called ArtofAtheism.. Does anyone know how to get a silver smith sponsor? Or know anyone who works with cheap metals?

Yeah, definitely a good idea to get the hell out from under their jurisdiction, first.

Joseph, in small town south, the evil web of corruption, deceit, nepotism, gossip, lies and 'good ol' boyism' is so entangled and runs way too deep for lil' ol' me right now. I hope to get back to the city soon when kids get gone. Then and only then would I even consider any unnecessary, involuntary contact with these county courts and/or law enforcement. They all went to high school together and they're all kin to the older folk; you can imagine how well it works.

Heck, you'd have had a lawsuit on your hands, if you had wanted it.  Since he's acting as a representative of the state, he's endorsing religion, a clear violation of the First Amendment.  Of course you'd want to wait until after your probation is over.  Probably well after the statute of limitations, now, so no worries either way.

So true Lynn, claiming to 'find religion' is considered a change for the better by many of our courts. Unfortunately, I found myself on a 6mo probation for a misdemeanor drug charge ~5yrs ago & the P.O.  inquired about my status with Gawd & urged me to attend his church at almost every visit. I'm in the rural south so I always politely declined & assured him that I grew up in a xtian home & knew the Lawd quite well (both very much true!).
