Congratulations to Kelly Finn and Kristin Griffin for winning the final week's Giving Giveaway items: William Vanaria Anvil Ring and Joy Raskin Spoon!

A HUGE THANK YOU to everyone who supported Metalwerx throughout the year and during our year-end appeal. Thank you to our Metalwerx friends who donated items to our Giving Giveaway!
