Jewelry designing is my bliss. After 11 years as a goldsmith in our gallery I got burned-out. In 1996 I took a workshop in metal clay and have not looked back. My work is in galleries from Sausalito to South Lake Tahoe. At the moment I am pursuing a great gallery in Portland, Oregon. The fewer the galleries the better. I am semi-retired now and just want to follow my bliss. Life is good.
