Studied at Alchimia for a year, looking to make a men’s range and
make some one off contemporary pieces. always on the look out for
interesting course or ways to develop my skills further. Hope to

I am a hobbyist primarily working with a variety of vintage lapidary
machines and jewelry making tools to make constructed jewelry with
silver and semi-precious stones. Rock collecting and lapidary work
were a family pastime growing up and many of the lapidary machines I
currently use were made by my father who was a professional sheet
metal craftsman. I have a fine arts degree from the University of
Texas and have been living and working in Austin since 1970.
