I became a metalsmith by accident. I am self-taught for the most part with the exception of a few random classes. I fell in love with metal over a slow progression of learning. I am by trade an RN and for 16 years I did both...was a jeweler and a nurse. Now I am a jeweler/metalsmith full time. It's a dream come true.
I live in a place that is truly inspiring, rural Wisconsin... The county I live in has one stop light in the entire county. It's a beautiful place with more cows than people. Lake Michigan is close by and so are the Green Bay Packers. I love this place and hope to never leave…
