Hello- I am a recently relocated fiber artist from Washington State. I work in silver, copper and semiprecious gems as well as beads, linen, leather and silk. Most of my pieces are one of a kind. I have a BA in Cultural Anthropology and Fiber Arts from WWU and I have been working as an independent art instructor for almost 20 yrs. In a way this is a reintroduction to Orchid. About 10 yrs ago and in what seems now like another life my husband and I lauched a small but fairly sucessful jewelry business in NW WA. He worked in sterling silver, copper and brass and I did bent wire work while acting as our frontman. We were not horribly prolific but we made enough to go self employeed and support our household until he died about 15 months ago. Needless to say the business is no more and I have started up my own stuff again in the hopes of not having to work for some else. In the meantime I wanted to rejoin. We learned alot here and I know I will again. So hello again Orchians (sp?) old n new. Can't wait to meet yall. Oh and if there Orchians in the Portland metro (Oregon) feel free to contact me. Amy; -
