Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Do you take custom orders?
A: No, sorry I don't take custom orders at this time.
Q: Do you sell at any local shows?
A: At the moment I don't. I have sold at the Indie Emporium many moons ago and the ISGB bead bazaar, but I'm not scheduled to sell anywhere in 2017. I might sell at the ISGB bead bazaar in 2018.
Q: I want to take a metalsmithing class, where do I find them?
A: Your local university or community college might offer classes as well as local vocational schools or art programs through your city. If you have no luck there, see if you have a lapidary club in your area, they might offer classes or at least have some info as to where to find local metalsmithing classes.
Q: I want to set up a casting studio, where do I start?
A: I would highly recommend that you find a local class. Casting is very hands on and there is a lot to learn. Check out your local community college, vocational schools, art programs through your city, or local lapidary clubs. www.ganoksin.com is also a great resource.
Q: I have some wax items that I need to have cast, can you cast them for me?
A: You might try a "casting house" as I don't cast for others. I've never used a casting house myself so I cannot personally recommend one, but here are a couple of links you might take a look at:
Q: I have some scrap silver, would you like to buy it or trade for a ring or something?
A: No, sorry. I already have a lot of scrap silver from my own bench. You can send your scrap in to Riogrande and get credit or money for it. I have done this and it was a very easy process.
