I am an Arizona native and have lived most of my adult years in New River, AZ.
In 1974 I began my jewelry career when still in high school working part time in a jewelry repair shop. After graduation, I worked full time as an apprentice to a highly skilled jewelry craftsman. The opportunity was quite rare at the time and I was passionate about achieving.
I’ve successfully completed GIA diamond courses in Santa Monica, CA, and various art and design classes. I have studied hands on with some great masters in the jewelry field.
