"In 1985 I started working for Swest Inc., one of the largest jeweler’s supply companies in the country at the time. I couldn’t have known then that I had been blessed to have stumbled into the occupation that I would grow to love. After a few years I left Swest and went to work at JFF Jeweler Supply under the incomparable Hans Kober. After many years I left the supply side of the business. I have worked as a bench jeweler, learning repair and fabrication as well as stone setting and finishing. Later I found myself specializing in wax carving, mold making and casting. As fate would have it, I returned to JFF selling tools and equipment. Working side by side with Hans and learning all I could about this wonderful art and industry. Along the way I have met and befriended some of the most incredible people.
"With the closing of JFF, I found a new home at the Metal Arts Guild of Georgia on the top floor. I have reconnected with the community that has supported me and my family for so many years. I am excited to continue to offer you the tools and materials that will help you to reach your metalsmithing goals. I would love to help foster your creativity with high quality tools and an understanding of how they are used. My faith tells me that everyone I encounter carries the image of Divinity and that, if I am oriented towards Christ, nothing is impossible. I believe that success lies in building lasting relationships that are built on respect and a desire to lift each other to greater heights. I invite you to visit me at my store at MAGG. I look forward to servicing your needs."
My store hours are Tuesday through Saturday - 10 am to 5 pm.
Hope to see you soon,
