I am a jewelry designer who started out as a painter. From beading I
moved to include wire wrapping, then metalworking and now precious
metal clay. I use materials I’ve collected from all over the world;
my designs are heavily influenced by the American southwest and
North Africa.

Recently left the corporate world and now exploring fabricated
jewelry for hobby and fun. Works consist mainly of beaded jewelry
but I wish to expand my knowledge to silversmithing. I’m just a
beginner at this point and anxious to learn. I’m currently looking
to purchase used silver smithing equipment, like files, hammers,
stamps etc. Any leads would be helpful. Thank you.
