About

I have been a silver and gold smith in Columbus Ohio since 1975. I was trained buy a great man named Russ Colly. Russ was dubbed ,The man who suited America for the space age..He was an engineer at B.F.Goodrich when he designed the space suit that took us to the moon . He was a darn good artist as well. Russ threw me a lifeline when he agreed to take me under his wing and teach me how to make jewelry.I have worked for several jewelers in town but moved my workshop to my own space. when our daughter was born. I have never regretted this as now I get to make jewelry that truly inspires me. I have taught myself how to cut a lot of my own stones. There is nothing like being your own boss.
