Name: Richard Baldwin
I am a gemology student with an interest in setting gems.
However, I am also interested in the effects of heat and flame on
metal, that is reticulation, firescale (yes, I do it
deliberately!) and textures. However, I have been doing this for
only two months, so my knowledge about this stuff is very small.
I hope to learn more as I complete both my silversmithing class,
and my gem courses.
