Sharon D Solly
Asheville, NC. USA
My name is Sharon Solly. I am learning everything I can about
working with metal and loving every minute of it. Being self taught
gives me time to soak it all in, make mistakes and learn from them
and revel in the finished pieces that worked right! Thank you to
everyone that shares their knowledge here. I will surely enjoy
learning all I can on this site.

Johannesburg, Gauteng. South Africa
I have been a goldsmith for twenty years now. I have progressed
through the years being lucky enough to specialize in antique
reproductions and my own contemporary designs. I have been running a
small school for about four years which is immensely satisfying and
hope to carry on exploring my creativity through gold smithing as I
still love it.
Palm Coast, Florida. USA
I’m a teacher who likes to have hobbies. I normally work on my
antique british motorcycle and since I have a lot of tools and like
to work with metal I thought I would try out some goldsmithing.
I’m a beginner and don’t have any mentors yet so I’m self teaching
and doing research. I’ve learned how to solder which came easy since
I can weld and I’m determined to learn how to make Mokume Gane so
that I can use that as my medium in the future.
