Silversmithing & Lapidary Work
My Grandfather dipped his toes into many waters. He did leatherwork, beadwork on a loom, Lapidary and stonecutting, silversmithing, and thats besides the things he did for a living. As he has gotten older, I decided to pursue a dream and I purchaced all his hand tools from when he did silver work in the 70s and 80s. I go over to his shed when I can and we work on stones. He has helped me more than he will know. I've read alot on the subject, watched a ton of videos and inspected tons of Native Jewelry over the years. Here is the best I can do....so far.
