I am 62 years old and retired on disability. I was originaly trained in Gold/Silver smithing in the early 70's. I then was employed in the computer industry and put the jewelry on a back burner. I am now beginning to do jewelry for my family. Sons and Daughters, grand and Great grandkids. My current activities include Faceting, Fabrication, and Wire Wrapping. I am just getting my Studio set up. I hope to add Casting and Wax soon. What I have seen of this site so far I am very impressed and hope to take advantage of the information and contribute what I can.
