i live in rural new south wales, australia, in a region famous for

workshop and studio where i teach silversmithing techniques and
produce my very varied range of jewellery and small objects. my
studio also houses my hoard of "found "objects. ( not so much found,

antique playing tokens to fantastic minerals and i

at least two of anything before i can use it…
