I am learning to make jewelry with the stones I have collected over
the years. I hope to learn something from this group.
Silver Spring, Maryland. USA
I’m an avid jewelry maker, have been taking classes for many years
at the Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore, MD. I have a
bachelors and masters degrees in the social sciences but my heart is
completely in the metal arts. I’m not a professional metalsmith as
yet and do not have a business, but I am intent on learning all that
I can and keeping up with current issues, techniques, trends, tools,
et al. One day when my daughters go to college I would
like to stick my toe in the professional water. I look forward to
being a part of Orchid.
