To back up even further, I'll add that I never expected anything to come out of my metals fabrication class five years ago. Never would I have believed that I would have the workshop I do today. 2014 really brought my bench to life with the addition of some much needed improvements and additions, like a nicer torch, fume hood, and other various tools. I can't really convey the pride I have in my bench setup or the fact that I was able to make it happen.
I am so incredibly grateful for all of my customers, friends, and family who have encouraged me over these years. Without you, none of this would be a possibility. Looking into 2015, I hope to create more beautiful pieces with settings that reflect the stones they feature.
I post very infrequently on here, but there are other ways to keep track of my new work, sales, and behind the scenes pictures:

A huge thanks to all of you, and a Happy New Year!
