Hi John, and welcome to Orchid!
In 1976, when I was 14, my family and I took a cross-country
trip starting from NY. One of my most vivid memories from the
trip was all the remarkable and innovative southwestern jewelry
I saw for sale by the artists at the Four Corners park
(monument?). To a large degree, I’d say that was a pivotal
experience, largely responsible for my current involvement in
the field. I was emotionally moved, intellectually fascinated
(as much as a 14 year old can be) and forever changed. I will
get back out there some day…
Ya got a Web site? I’d love to see some work!
