mounting and setting. Three grandchildren another on the way tends to

I am an emerging jewelry artisan with my primary interests in metal
smithing, wire, and mixed media. My husband also works with me in
the studio. We are currently selling our products at Farmers
Markets. Our goal is to improve our skills to make more
sophisticated jewelry and then increase our potential markets.

Spring Lake, MI. USA

I am a novice jewelry maker of about 5 years. I have been working
with my hands for almost my entire life and have worked with fibers
mostly up until this point. In the past 3 years, I have decided that
I want to train to be a goldsmith and now have the opportunity to do
so. I just got home tonight from a two day class with Michael David
Sturlin and am so excited to have learned so much from him this
weekend. I will be signing up for the Jewelry Technician Intensive
Program at Revere Academy in the next few weeks. I am certain that
this will be the start of another great adventure and explor ation in
my life.
