Mike Tayse
Painesville, OH. USA

I currently teach reading at the elementary level and an evening
jewelry class at LCCC, a northeast Ohio community college. I enjoy
making and fixing things, cooking, gardening, riding bikes,
listening and playing music, and reading.

I work out of a small (200 square feet?) studio I built myself in my
back yard. I produce mostly inexpensive work for sale locally along
with basic repairs and ring sizing. Techniques I utilize are basic
fabrication, photo etching, and some casting.

Molly Jeffers
Yelm, WA. USA

I started taking silversmith classes a couple of years ago and love
it.I also like rock hounding and my husband and are are learning to
make our own cabs. I may never be great but I do enjoy learning new
ways to work with metal.

Cindy Hill
Hampshire, IL. USA

Hello, my name is Cindy Hill. I am an intermediate level chain
maille artist and I work primarily in sterling silver, Argentium,
and various base metals for the bulk of my designs. I have been
creating chain maille work since 2006, but I also use other wirework
methods and incorporated beads into my designs. I am interested in
joining The Orchid forums to assist me in becoming a more
professional artist and learning to better photograph my work for
upcoming website, blog, and juried show entries.

I live in Hampshire, Illinois with my husband Kurt and our 5 year
old Golden Retriever, Buster.
