Patti Bigsby Moylan
Wake Forest, NC

Greetings Everyone,

My name is Patti, a jewelry artist married to a “rockhound”. We
enjoy how our interests intertwine. He is forever hunting,
collecting, cutting and polishing fantastic gems from all over (the
south) mainly. I love to create with colors, shapes and textures and
my true love is silver. The first time I soldered a small circle,
and saw the silver flow…that was it! Up until that time I was a
fiber artist. Now after studying at Penland, and a couple of local
classes, this is my passion and my ‘retirement career’ as well.

I am happy to find this forum, and I look forward to learning and
sharing with you all.

I’ve been on here about a year now I think and I’ve found Orchidland

great friendships through Orchid too and I’m sure that you will have
the same positive experiences. You’ll learn lots too - I have.
