Hi all, new member Bruce Hershberger in Lomita, CA. I started silversmithing 2 years ago after 18 years of custom bladesmithing and having my rotator cuff surgery…needed a \”lighter\” hobby 🙂 I think I\’m doing pretty well so far but I\’ll let y\’all be the judge of that after I get around to posting some pics. I joined bc there is soooo much to be learned out there, and like many, I\’ve learned everything so far by trial and error and depending on the generous information shared by the artisans on forums and elsewhere. So, I look forward to learning, sharing, and communicating with other likeminded people.

Welcome to Orchid! There are LOTS of truly amazing and extremely talented people who generously share their knowledge and are incredibly helpful with problem solving!
