A fledging dreamer in silver, I’m looking forward to networking with

I am new to making jewelry making. I am still in the infancy stages
but want to expand and learn about metalsmithing. I’ve been
collecting stones where I can. I recently saw a demonstration of
foldsmithing from Rio Grande on TV. That looks like much fun. My
style is elegant, modern, clean & crisp. And on odd days, it’s
baroque, elaborate, colorful & teeming with movement. I don’t like
to be tied down to one thing if I can help it. I’m easily bored so I
want to learn everything!

I am fairly new to Jewelry and took the JTI Program at Revere
Academy of Jewelry in San Francisco last year. So I am hungry to
learn more and everything I can about bench jewelry making a
fabricaton as well as a huge interest in working In Argentium rather
than Sterling. I have lots of questions and hopefully the kind people
in this form can and will help me along the way. Thanks JIM
