I retired from the corporate world a few years ago and moved from CA to the Northwest, where I found a studio teaching metal fabrication. It has been a passion for the past two years. I use mostly small cabs and faceted stones in one-of-a-kind ring, bracelet and pendant designs. I am always looking for ways to improve my skills and broaden my knowledge. My only regret is that I waited until I am old to start this wonderful avenue of creation and I don't have a full lifetime ahead of me to perfect it.
