Ben Barrett
Eugene, OR. USA

I started blacksmithing around 2005, and have gotten interested in
smaller work since then, mostly copper but some silver too; took one
jewelry forging class and one jewelry casting class at my local
community college after reaching some limits in the smaller work. I
am not a full-time artist and do not even consider myself a "pro"
although I certainly sell pieces both large and small. Most of my
work has gone to trades with other artists, gifts to family and
friends, and donations to silent auctions or other non-profit
fundraisers. I might be considered a hobbyist or amateur but I am an
avid learner and have been absorbing about various
mediums and processes for many years.

I am an Icelandic goldsmith, stonesetter and handengraver.

I have been doing this for 20 years.

Looking forward to learning more from you all.
