    Cool! Nice stuff! My hubby is a goldsmith/silversmith, so I'm interested in this sort of thing. Did you go to school for it?

    No I am a self taught artist. I love doing it. I am a hairstylist for my real job. Wish I could do this full time. Waiting for my sales to get steady so I can close my shop.

    Would love to see his stuff.

    Here's a few shots of some stuff he's done - they are pretty outdated though! We need to take pics of some more recent stuff.

    Wow. It is beautiful. I want to learn how to do that inlay design. I am about ready to go take classes but I just don't know when I would have time. I would rather learn from someone who does it. I hate all the theory that schools have you take.
    Out dated or not it is really nice.

    He's more or less self taught with the engraving. He went to school for 4 years for goldsmithing and gemology, but fell in love with engraving. He bought the equipment and just went at it. He eventually apprenticed with a geaermaker, and now he does buckles, bits and spurs. We want to make our business more about the engraving than the fine jewellery, but for now it pays the bills!
    You seem to have a lot of talent for it - so go for it!

    Thank you for the encouragement it is always nice to hear that I am talented,from someone who isn't family. I think that engraving is so cool. I work with metal clay a lot. I can do just about anything with it. I would love to learn how to do the patterns he uses.
    It is hard to find someone in Pa who does anything like that. I know it is better to learn from someone else rather than go to school for it. His stuff is beautiful. I would love to see the bits and spurs. Where does he sell them?
    Hugs L.

    We have a store in the town where we live. He does custom jewellery - mostly engagement rings etc., repair and custom pieces. He does buckles, bits and spurs to order. Two of the pics are of my spurs - the pics are just the shank and part of the rowel. He has a portfolio somewhere, I'll look for it. I'll also try and find some links for you to engraving equipment sites. GRS does courses I believe in Kentucky. Hubby does them at a college in Toronto. There are some great books, too that he found very helpfull. I'll get the names.

    I would be very grateful for that. He does beautiful work. He is so talented. I am glad he is busy doing that. My sweety makes wooden spoons that are beautiful. We are hoping to have our talent pay the bills at some point. Just getting started really. We do have a huge show coming up at the end of the month. We should do well there.
    Here are some of his pictures

    We love creating.
