I'm a 60 year-old grandmother who is just learning to do metalsmithing. I'm embarassed to call myself an artist or even business owner since I haven't sold anything. I have always loved color, jewelry and fashion, but I'm just now reacquainting myself with the artistic side of myself. I'm here to learn and maybe find some courage and inspiration. I'm married to the same man I've been married to for over 30 years. We have two grown children and two grandchildren. We also have one very old wonderful dog and four cats. All of these animals found us; we didn't seek any of them out. Thanks for reading this.
