Overview

Originally posted in the Orchid Forum 08/04/2008

My first piece of jewelry still hangs on the walls of Metalwerx. I like it on the wall. Nobody knows whose it is and there is no name that sits by it. I know and the walls of Metalwerx know and I don't need to own it anymore. It reflects my history, and three milestones in my life. There was my time as an adult education student creating a pierced triangle with small decorative cuts, a set carnelian stone with a bezel, and a long hand-hammered 12-ga round wire chain with jump ring connections. When I looked at my piece as a teacher I saw in it how I'd gained enough wisdom to teach others and watch my students learn, how I was learning...from my mistakes and my successes. The piece traveled to Metalwerx, the school I built so that the learning could continue, experienced and passed on by others. Who would think that looking at a crude silver pendant I could see so much passion, so much history...all that I have learned...from all of you...all in one piece of jewelry.

The key in all of this is education. With so much going against us in the US, it is up to us, in any way we can, to educate the public. By wearing jewelry, or art jewelry we have an opportunity to educate the public about what we do and how we do it.
