I participated in posts last spring for a very short time but
had to unsubscribe to move my whole classroom to a new facility
and get some of my own work done. A personal introduction is
probably long overdue. A recent inadvertent post (intended as an
off list e-mail), now that I have again subscribed, may make this
introduction seem superfluous .
I live in central or upstate NY (depending on where you live in
NY. The rest of the universe doesn’t make the distinction).
Currently I work as a high school Art teacher but have also
taught at the college and adult ed. level. I do custom designs
in silver and gold and sell work at a few craft fairs. Formal
training includes Penn State for education (undergraduate) and
Rochester Institute of Technology (Masters in Metals). I
started making jewelry again last year after almost a four year
hiatus and have greatly benefited from the posts on Orchid. Many
thanks to all.
