Season’s greetings to all, especially Dr. Aspler whose
generosity and dedication make this forum possible. Thank you.
I design and fabricate jewelry in silver and gold using natural
stones (very few faceted.) Most of my smithing education (last 6
yr) consists of a semester at Arizona State University and
various workshops with metals artists. Twenty years ago, I began
a hobby of lapidary and silversmithing as member of a midwest gem
and mineral club. A few years ago, I left professional nursing
(with help and support of husband Joe) to pursue a new jewelry
Was subscribed (to digest) last year and was too involved to
join in. After a few months away, I’ve re-subscribed to Orchid
and hope to be more involved.
