Hi. I have never been part of a forum before and am a bit confused as
to how it works. I have been learning from Ganoksin and the Orchid
archives for a long time, and have decided to finally join. I studied
metal design with Mary Hu and John Marshall at the UW, Seattle and
graduated in 1998. Ever since then I have been slowly, slowly
figuring out how to make a living through selling my creations. I
work primarily in fabrication with silver and high karat gold. I am
in the mood to broaden and sharpen my skills lately and thought that
joining the forums might help. I don’t have a lot of time to spend on
the computer, so we will see how involved I can get! Thanks- Sharon
