Metal Embossing - Traditional embossing to allow you to make frames, mirrors, boxes, cards.

Words of Encouragement to Novice Teachers:

"More than knowledge it is the spirit of sharing that makes a teacher a good one. One is always learning, no matter how many years there is never a level that I would say it is enough. If you know even the basics, practice and teaching makes you even a better tutor all the time. For me the satisfaction of my students is something priceless."
