Hi Everyone! I love to design jewelry with semi-precious stones,
lampwork beads and sterling silver. I have been lampworking for
about 2 years. I love working with borosilicate glass. Last year I
took 2 metalsmith classes. I will be enrolling for more this Fall.

Hi, my name is Allan Smith. I have been making jewellery for the
last 27 years as a hobby. I attended group lessons at a local
secondary college for at least 10 years. I have a real passion for
jewellery making with a good collection of tools, and a small
library of books on the subject. My other hobby is woodworking and
making furniture. My day job is an Instrumental Music Teacher in
three secondary colleges teaching Percussion. I also play drums in a
band at weekends. I have a beautiful wife, five grown up children
and nine grandchildren. Life is good!!
