In my teens I found myself job hunting and stumbled across a local jeweler- under her wing i learned the simplest form of soldering and mass production. It was love at first flame. I soldered so much and so often that I swear by now I could probably do it with my eyes closed and my hands tied behind my back- but it helped me grow. I wanted to know everything... through books and a lot of experimenting (which usually resulted in a lot of melted metal) I began to teach myself more advanced techniques and my skills grew rapidly. I started against the grain and then decided i still needed to know more. I started taking classes at Mesa Center for the Arts and I never looked back. Metals are my passion. I now experiment in many different silversmithing techniques and have recently become one of the workshop instructors at the very same art center that I was taught at.
My methods may not be that of a typical instructor…
