My Fold Pendant is copper, sterling and Labradorite. Fold-formed, hand fabricated and self-cut stone. 2010.

In my day job, I am the Senior Editor of Lapidary Journal Jewelry Artist magazine. I am also a professional graphic artist and metalsmith. For those of you who might remember me from Jewelry Artist Flashcard, this blog is my attempt to recapture the flavor of that newsletter. I won’t try to convince you to do anything but think, I promise!

This will a home for my personal artistic musings, discoveries and experiments.

I hope to share some tips and techniques here as well. Ideas are the things that I have an abundance of. When I get them, I share — that is my job in this world.

Feel free to comment, but please — be nice. There is an overwhelming and never ending supply of mean out there already… I like uncommon things!
