I love to share this with the men and women who purchase my pieces as well as the students that I teach. I love the feeling of teaching others the techniques I have learned throughout the years, and enjoy watching the fulfillment they receive when they finish creating their first piece.
My husband and I own a studio and gallery in Jacksonville called King Street Studios and Gallery. We offer classes in blacksmithing and metal jewelry arts and have guest teachers teaching classes such as silk screen, pottery, african and middleeastern drumming, mosaic arts and more. My husband makes the beautiful railroad spike knives you see listed in my shop and he also does large scale sculptures.
