Artist Statement: I have earned my living as a bench jeweler since 1981, the last seventeen years being at Van Horn Jewelers where I have my workshop located above the store on Lake Street. I have never opened up the workshop to the public until now. I will be discussing and demonstrating some of the creative and technical processes involved in designing and crafting original pieces of jewelry. As a sculptor and painter I bring those same sensibilities to the building of jewelry. I’ve always viewed jewelry making as the creation of wearable art. Over the 41 years that I’ve worked in the field I’ve seen the development of many new modern tools while still using ancient techniques. I look forward to sharing my knowledge and experience with visitors to my space.
