Hello everyone. I am fairly new to silversmithing so I’ve got a lot
to learn. I live in San Antonio and have only found a few places
that offer any type of metals classes. I’ve got a lot of practicing
to do. It’s great to know there are so many people who share their
knowledge and expertise. Thanks so much! Adele

Harla A Hagen
Wild Harp Design Studio
Mesa, Arizona. USA

I am first a silversmith, but I also love casting and enameling. I
have had some college education with fine arts as my major. While I
have been exposed to fine arts in general and silversmithing in
particular all my life, I am still growing and evolving. My business
is fledgling,and growing slowly, especially in our present economy.
However, I am remaining positive and persistent. I am presently
working on a baby spoon for a new baby in our family. I love
forging, but I have by no means mastered the skills needed. I
appreciate Ganoksin’s and look forward to participating.
