I have been fascinated by the beauty that Mother Earth has created all my life and with the many geological and metaphysical properties of the various crystals and stones. Many years ago I took a lapidary course and learned to cut stones, then I had to have something to do with all the stones I had cut, hence on to metalsmithing, mainly construction methods. Now that I am retired I have now set up my bench so I can return to metalsmithing and will be adding some of my earlier creations in my shop plus my new work. I use mainly sterling silver with precious and semi-precious gemstones but also like to mix my metals.
I am a Usui Reiki Master and retirement has enabled me to use my Reiki and my fine arts training in creative endeavors that bring joy to others. Although my favorite fine arts medium is watercolor, I do a lot of decorative art and love working with gourds. If it holds still long enough I will either paint…
