I love creating with my hands. I still cannot get over the fact that
people pay me for the stuff I create. I love working with silver,
gold, titanium and Damascus. The custom jobs I get dictates what I
work with but if I had to choose it would be with Damascus.

Working with Damascus fascinates me, getting those patterns to pop
is a great feeling. I love the fact that the pattern is a mystery
while working with the metal, hidden from sight, making you wonder
if you are wasting your time, until you place it in the acid and
boom, your heart gives a flutter when you see that pattern, you
cannot wait to show it to someone so they can share in the joy that
you feel. What a great feeling.
