Randy Armstrong
Jeweler of the Mountains
Bluff City, Tn, USA

Collecting rocks since childhood led to learning lapidary. If you cut
stones you have to learn metalsmithing. So for nearly 25 years I have
been a designer/jeweler/lapidarist producing one-of-a-kind pieces.
Over the years I have won about 30 awards at art and art and craft
shows and exhibits. I cut about 85 % of the stones I use and work
primarily in silver with some gold applique. I occasionally teach as
an adjunct and will be an instructor at Wm. Holland School of
Lapidary Arts in 2006. A current interest is making metal vessels
and sculptures.
