The Legends series of rings has been well received by her national and international peers in metal clay.
Last winter she traveled to Maryland and Virginia to teach her stonesetting techniques and her Legends ring with channel set stones.
In September she will be in San Diego teaching two workshops on creating and setting stones in this ring series. She has had a verbal acceptance to teach a dichroic glass ring workshop at the Glass Craft Expo in Las Vegas in the Winter of 2012
Her beginning and intermediate workshops will be ending this year. Her focus from now on will be specialty workshops only. A beginning metal clay workshop slated for Saturday, Aug. 8, will be her last. There are only two openings left.
Baum-Davis is also teaching a pre-conference workshop on keum-boo: the Korean method of applying 24k gold to pure silver. She is also giving a PowerPoint presentation on this awesome treatment for jewelry three times at the Metal Clay World Conference just outside Chicago from July 11 to 16.
