Georgianne Fergesen
Louisville, CO. USA

Let’s see. I’ve been playing around with beads with about 8 years
and started playing around with metals 2-3 years ago. I don’t wanna
play around anymore. As a painter, I’ve discovered that metals will
keep me busy the rest of my life! 3-D, infinite roads to travel; I’m
so fired up! I’ve been extremely fortunate to find a teacher that I
love as a mentor and a friend, who doesn’t let me sit on my beehind
and daydream about all the beautiful things I will make someday! So,
every day is about learning new things and building confidence that
they will actually happen with the tools in my hands. Now if I can
just stay away from the tool sites for awhile…

I currently am an importer and wholesaler of silver jewelry. I have
designed some of the pieces I sell and now I would like to learn to
make my own designs. If anyone has suggestions about silversmithing
courses around Vancouver or Vancouver Island I would appreciate
hearing from you
