Sometime in the early 2000s, I found myself at El Camino Community College taking a tour of the art department. What I mean by this, is that I was taking art class after art class, trying to expand my repertoire of skills… drawing, painting, printmaking, sculpture, ceramics, photography and finally… jewelry! Learning fabrication techniques, stone setting and casting from Irene Mori was a turning point in my life! I was looking for a medium that felt like the right fit and something I could devote myself to. Well, I fell in love with that pretty blue flame and life will never be the same again.
