Metalsmithing has always intrigued me, as a young I dreamed of
attending the Cleveland Institute of Art, but the financial
realities of life put me on a course 30+ years of personally very
rewarding work as a small business owner/finish carpenter. Nothing
is more rewarding to me than completeing a project that pleases not
only pleases me, but all those who view it. The time has come for me
to pursue my Metalsmithing dream and I thirst for the knowledge to
inprove old and gain new skills.

Robert Michael Printz
New Hyde Park, New York. USA

I have produced many pieces of jewelry in past years and some of my
work has earned awards through the Long Island Craftsman’s Guild.
There has been, however, the passage of some years in which I have
not produced any work and I am about to continue again. I have a
rather complete shop, and can’t wait to get started again. My work
is very contemporary and clean lined and I have worked in all the
metals as I enjoy the colors of the various metals. I feel the need
to learn several techniques with which I have been involved.
Hingeing is one and clasps is another. My work is very dimensional
involving various levels of metal within the context of any one
