About

Non-smiths:
You don't have to be a jeweler yourself to become a patron! If you wish to simply support me for continuing to create beautiful content through smithing as well as photography, I am forever grateful. I appreciate you.

Smiths: 
Most who follow me on Instagram @BearandtheAdelaide know that I'm extremely generous with my time and knowledge.

I donate a part-time schedule to free and valuable education to my community via Instagram whether that be through my story posts or questions I answer through DM. I do an endless amount of research on tools and products and also invest a lot on experimentation to find what I like best. I have drawers and drawers full of products I didn't like or don't use. I share a lot of my favorites through Instagram which eliminates that trial and error process for you and allows your investment to go further. I extensively research individual ingredients in every product that comes into my studio and I'm very intentional about what I buy in regard for my health. I often share my favorite alternative solutions willingly because I know the self-taught community lacks the important topic of safety and health in the workplace.

If I have helped you in any way in the past with questions, equipment recommendations, troubleshooting or being an inspirational jeweler to help guide you in the beginning of your smithing career —I set up this Patreon for you to say thank you for your time.

If you find yourself asking me questions often via Instagram DM, please consider supporting this page so I can continue to leave a part-time window open for this.

As a token of my appreciation—
I'll be posting one in depth topic on health and safety per month (public example below) that will be available to Platinum+ members and I'll be posting one random tip per month that will be available to Gold+ members. This information will be able to be referenced back at anytime as long as you are a subscriber at that tier level.

I can't put a value on the information that I share, but at $5/mo ($60/year), $10/mo ($120/year) etc—that is a fraction of the cost you would ever pay for one class on even an introductory topic.

Thank you for taking the time to read this and HAPPY SOLDERING.
