Instructor for Silver II - Filigree Class
at Wildacres August
I started collecting rocks and fossils since I was in diapers. I claim my artistic abilities come from both parents. Still have a full time job, but manage to spend as much time with my local club teaching. Excelled at silversmithing, cabbing, faceting and loved filigree and inlay. Studied at Jacksonville club, and William Holland from the greats for the past 20 years, and taught for the past 17 years. I have a passion of sharing what I've learned and encourage all clubs to do the same to keep the lapidary arts alive. I gauge the success of my classes from the amount of fun my students have.
