After studying art at Bates College I began making simple silver jewelry just for fun. Then my wife and I went to the Woodstock festival… and just couldn’t go back to our old life. We came to New Hampshire with little more than a dream and a hammer and torch. Now 50 years and 4 kids later I enjoy (more than ever) my “job” of making fun silver jewelry for fun people! When younger, I had to prove myself with complex metalwork and gemstones, but now I much prefer making simpler, fluid, wearable jewelry in designs inspired by the spiral shapes I find in wetlands in Vermont and Cape Cod. My jewelry has made it all over this green world but can mainly be found now in the NH League stores.
