Bicycles to Metal to Glass

For about 10 years I built racing bicycles for the elite division of Schwinn, Paramount Design Group. After graduating from college in 1992 with a BFA in Metalsmithing, I continued working for another very high end specialty bicycle manufacturer for another 2 years. For the last 25 years I have been involved in the bead business. In 1995 lampwork glass beads became an obsession and I figured out a couple of different ways to make beads, contrary to what was commonly accepted as the "only" way. These beads I have been selling at bead shows since 1996. Since I have a degree in Metalsmithing and am very familiar with metals and soldering processes, I started selling gold filled and sterling silver items to supplement the lampwork glass. It has been exciting to see how the industry has changed over the years. Recently, I have focused on lampwork cabochons which are created off-mandrel, similar to glass blowing but on a much smaller scale. Somewhere in between all this I also started making hand drums and rattles. There are a few sculptures that I have created using rawhide.
