Silversmithing is Enjoyable

 

As a school teacher, I found myself lacking a concrete finished product that I could look at and say, "I made that."  I filled that void with silversmithing.  In the early 90's, already a rockhound, I found myself wanting to learn lapidary so I could do something productive with all the cool minerals I had brought home.  At the time, I was unable to find anyone to teach me this craft.  I was able to find some metalsmithing courses, and I really enjoyed doing it.  I spent several years tinkering with it, and then reconnected with my mentor who provided further guidance.  It has turned into an extremely satisfying and important part of my life.  If you have a need to create like I did, perhaps this is the medium for you!
