Mary A Barnes
Eagle’s Find
Woodland, WA. USA

I took a course in metalsmithing at San Diego Community College in
the early 90’s and have been hooked ever since. I am mostly
self-taught but hope that in the near future I can start taking
workshops to take my work to the next level. Some call my
silversmithing a hobby but it is much more than that to me. I don’t
work at it full time but along with quilting it is part of myself
that I hope to keep working at the rest of my life. It is a passion!
