I am an artist working in stained glass as well as jewelry design. My
recent adventures have me working in PMC, level 1 certified with an
interest in both the new bronze clay as well as fold forming.
I wish to expand my knowledge with the medium and look forward to
learning from others of like mind.

We are a retired couple who have enjoyed rockhounding/faceting/and
opal cutting. It seemed a natural step to move into jewelry creation
and repair. We’ve taken several jewelry courses, both at the local
county tech school and private instruction. Additionally we attended
a private one week stone setting course. We have a local jeweler who
has taken us “under his wing” and has been very generous with his
knowledge and experience. We have been lavishing jewelry on our
family for some time now, and it has been an absolute blast. We are
also astonished by the talent we see exhibited by local bench
jewelers. The are true artisans, and that’s a moniker we hope to
attain. We’re sure this site will go a long way in helping us to
achieve that goal. Thanks for allowing us to participate.
