I have been a member of Orchid for a relatively short period of time
but I do have about 30 years of jewelry/metal working experience. I

Be well,

thing. Back to the bench, I really love using what is available to
make what you need rather than just buying new stuff. It’s more
meaningful that way. Maybe you should call it your
