Hi, my name is Susan. I have been making jewelry for 2 years
focusing mainly on wirework but now getting serious about
silversmithing. I take classes at local art centers, workshops with
area artist, buy loads of books and of course scour the internet to
satisfy my metal addiction. So of course I look forward to being part
of the Ganoksin community.
