Hello Michael, I’ve spent about 12 yrs. working for other people,
the rest on my own. Right now, I own a retail store in Arlington,
Va. with my wife and daughter. Most of my time is spent at the
bench in the back room. I suppose I have a lot of “hindsight”. I’ve
surely made about every mistake known. Almost. Tom

Welcome Tom, I often wonder if there isn’t a better way to learn
other than by making mistakes. If there is a better way I’d like
to know it. I often tell my students that the real art of
jewellery is knowing how to fix mistakes and get out of
self-inflicted trouble. Regards, Rex from Oz
