In what area of the metal arts do you work?
Tell us about your education.
My first experience in making jewelry was at Nascad. I took a part-time silversmithing course in Halifax a couple of years ago. I then moved to Vancouver and I traveled to and from Seattle to take classes at Danaca Design.

I am looking into more classes at Acad for the fall.
