I spent three days in lovely Florence last weekend. On Friday I gave a lecture at Alchimia: Contemporary Jewelry School. My talk was a basic over view of my process and work from Line Drawings to my most current work, "Observation/Translation." The talk felt good and as I spoke and looked around the room at my audience, students seemed engaged as they nodded and smiled back at me. I answered a few questions at the end and then did just a few one-on-ones. I also enjoyed lunch with Doris Maninger, one of the school's founders, a real pleasure.

Thanks for reading.
